2022 Wrap Up

We appreciated the 123 donors who contributed $27,570 to EMS during the Great Community Give on April 20, 2022! The gifts helped us to make upgrades to our auditorium (curtains and technical equipment) throughout the summer and fall of 2022.

2022 Background and Invitation
The arts addition to our building provides a beautiful 600-seat auditorium. The space has been used almost daily since construction in 2005 by our school, local churches, and the broader community. One of the secrets of the recent Wizard of Oz production was that most of the equipment was rented!

Our auditorium is integral to our life together and it’s time for some upkeep! Great Community Give 2022 gifts help fund upgrades so the space will continue serving the needs of  artists, speakers, and performers.
