On Thursday, June 26, the Snyder Museum and Creative Arts Center received a $1,000 micro-grant from the Entergy Corporation. Customer Service Representative Roderick Worthy made the presentation to Candy Nugent, executive director at the Snyder.
According to Nugent, a portion of the grant will provide Entergy with a Corporate Membership at the Snyder, help to support advertising for the museum and help fund the next round of summer art workshops, which will occur from July 7 to 10. The money will be also used to obtain art supplies and materials for the budding artists who will attend the classes for ages five through 12.
At the museum's previous summer art workshop, which ran from June 16 to 19, kids ages 5 to 7 used the unique characteristics of the state of Louisiana and paints, pastels and clay to spark their creativity while children ages eight to 12 participated in a camp focused on naturalist and artist John James Audubon.
For information about any of the programs being held at the Snyder Museum or to register for classes call 281.8760.
On the same day that the Snyder received its grant, Roderick Worthy also presented Keep Morehouse Beautiful with a grant from Entergy in the amount of $1,000.
According to Vicki Carpenter, KMB will use their grant to improve lighting at Bastrop's city parks in order to enhance security. A photograph of the check presentation appeared in the June 27 edition of the Enterprise.
