Cultural Council seeks community input

GRANVILLE – The Granville Cultural Council has made surveys available throughout town for residents to give their input on what they would like to see for cultural events, what they miss or would like to see happen in town, and possible new programs moving forward.

In the past, the Cultural Council has had a program on bears that was hosted by the Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife. Besides other programs involving music, the Cultural Council is having a Birds of Prey program on April 13 from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Community Christian School. A professional falconer, who also rehabs injured birds, will have birds on display to show those in attendance.

Offering between eight and 10 programs each year, the Granville Cultural Council wants to improve the variety of events that they offer.

“We’re trying to do something we haven’t done before,” said Cultural Council co-chair Mary Ann Fernandez.

Required by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to do a survey every three years, the survey allows the Granville Cultural Council to maintain funding for their events and programs.

According to Fernandez, the Massachusetts Cultural Council usually gives the Granville Cultural Council around $4,500 a year to fund the programs they host.

The surveys are available for residents at the town hall and the public library, and can be filled out there and left there. There’s also a copy of the survey in the latest country caller. People can also send the survey to the Granville Cultural Council at post office box 247 at the Granville Town Hall.
