Merritt Volunteers Print E-mail

Merritt,  Joyce and Wendy talked and brainstormed and hoped one day to get the backing from a permanent Director and the Board for such a program as part of Pacesetters. In the meantime, Merritt volunteered to begin an art program at Pacesetters. She visited Putnam Center once a week for one month, then switched to Livingston and came there once a month for 2 years. In 1999 John Green was hired as the new Pacesetter Director. Merritt met with him, and showed him a video of her residency while at Creativity Unlimited in San Jose, CA.  John, whose credentials included a Fine Arts degree, was very excited about starting an AIR Program at Pacesetters. He then appointed Joyce to explore how to get a grant to fund the program.   Joyce signed up to attend the next TAC grant writing workshop.
