Like any building it’s in need of repairs. We refinished our back shed! Thank you all for your help, but we still need some funds to help cover cost. We also need to work on insulating basement floors and add blow-in insulation to ceiling plus move thermastat to heat addition only to help lower cost.
If you would like your donation to go to a particular area please earmark it (this is completely separate from specific fund raisers, such as for youth camps etc.). Please earmark it when donating. We look forward to exciting things happening in the near future. Thank you.

~ Thank you to many that have donated to help keep things running.


Thank you to all that have helped. We were able to donate $500 to the Arts & Music room.
“Nelson County Arts Council loves to see people find a healing touch through all the arts, especially when it can be a member from our community. From our youngest fine arts youth camper to our eldest supporter, we are pleased to provide this small token of love and appreciation the artist in need.”  ~Jennifer Parker
