Last month I found out that I had been elected to the Board of Directors for the Red River Revel Arts Festival. I can't tell you how tickled and frankly humbled I was to become a part of such a prestigious organization. The Revel has been part of the backbone of our community for years and some of my earliest memories of the Revel are field trips taken to the event during elementary school!

I just loved the colored sand and all of the crafts! Later, as a high school student, I would return as a volunteer, working for several years in the children's area. Needless to say, the Revel has a special place in my heart and if you've lived here for any length of time, it most likely does for you, too!

This year's Red River Revel Arts Festival will be here before you know and they're looking for your ideas! That's why, in my first act as a board member, I'd like to extend an invitation to you to share your opinion.

The Red River Revel will be holding online focus groups in March to glean information that will help us improve the Revel. If you are interested, we are looking for participants who have attended the Revel in the past but have stopped attending, and participants who are able to attend but have never attended. These one-hour focus groups will be hosted on Zoom on a weekday from 5:30-6:30 pm.

If you are interested please go to the Red River Revel Facebook page or email rrr@redriverrevel.com to sign up. In order to ensure we have diverse groups, please share your age, ethnicity, and gender, along with your email and mobile phone number so we can contact you.

We would be truly grateful for your participation! As a small token of our appreciation, we will have a drawing for a $50 gift card after each focus group!

Thank you!
