Buckland Cultural Council Input Survey Gatherings Schedule

Because local Cultural Council members are responsable for distributing public dollars, Councils need to solicit and collect local public opinion about how to best distribute funds. The Buckland Cultural Council receives more requests than can be funded, and strong guidelines based on public feedback can help guide grant making decisions. For this reason, members of the Buckland Cultural Council will be available and accepting public input to collect diverse veiwpoints about the community’s resources, interests, and needs.

Input survey gatherings will happen at the following times and locations:

-Pothole Pictures, Friday, August 21, 2015 and Saturday, August 22, 2015, before the movie (6:45 - 7:30 p.m.)
