The meeting for Branch County’s center for arts and culture includes a review of the 2016-17 fiscal year, a financial report of the theatre and highlights for the year ahead.
The community and members of the Tibbits Foundation are invited to join the board of directors for a reception in the lobby beginning at 5:30 pm followed by the annual meeting.
