Honoring its many volunteers, the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center handed out snacks, punch and dessert during a volunteer appreciation celebration earlier this month. 

The center acknowledged its top ten hosts and volunteers, which included Kathy White, Melinda Beadel, Kika Hutchings, Liz Rosedale, Jesus Gonzales, Johanna Sedivy, Valerie Powdrell, Ed Monteath, Diana Freeman and Amie Rodriguez.

Board members Alan Koch, Tim Cohen, Kathy Dubock, Lynda Fairly, Bob Storkes and Carla Stein honored the center’s volunteers, and three board members – Kathy, Lynda and Bob – each received palette pins and signed prints of John Wullbrandt’s mural, for frequently hosting at the gallery. 

Kathy White was also awarded volunteer of the quarter for her “countless hours” and “outstanding contributions” to the center. She was given a palette pin and a signed print from Wullbrandt and will be taken out to lunch by a board member and staff. 

The center also honored the spouses of those who work at the arts center, for “all the dedication and continuous support they have given,” according to a release from the center.
