News from The Inn!

Frances the Cat (our newest volunteer) and I have been monitoring the world from our unique vantage point here in the valley of Tisch Mills. It’s a strange moment in the world and I hope that you and yours are managing to keep safe and maintain a good perspective on the many challenges that we face now and are to come.

Along with other performance venues across the country, we are currently closed. It is difficult to predict when the situation will change sufficiently for us to freely open our doors again. We hope that current social distancing strategies are loosened as mitigation efforts are clarified and implemented, but it is hard to know where the other end of the journey lies.
In the meantime, in the interest of creating some kind of structure, we are rebuilding our schedule on the assumption that we will be able to resume operations in late May. It may be optimistic, but some kind of plan is in order.
So, a new tentative schedule is listed at the bottom of this message. Basically, we are taking our current schedule and compressing it with a restart on May 21.
If you already have tickets for an event: Your reservation will be automatically moved into a comparable date in the new schedule and you will receive notification of that change. If that date does not work for you, you can move the reservation to a date of your choosing from the new schedule. If, in the end, we are not able to complete your reservation we will refund your tickets. Refunds will be distributed after operations resume.
If you are on facebook, like our page so you get the most recent information!

In the meantime, here are some things you can do to support The Forst Inn Arts Collective and ensure that we survive this extraordinary time. Like many businesses and non-profits, while our cash flow has come to an abrupt stop, our creditors and basic expenses still need to be attended to.

Buy tickets! Our events have been moved to accommodate our new schedule and tables may be reserved. We have limited seating for May and June events in the belief that even if we can open there will be a need to provide some level of social distancing. This means that there will be fewer tickets available. Secure your seat and help support our events!
Contribute To The Cause! There are a number of ways you can help with our finances in ways that fit your budget. Make sure we weather the storm along with you.
  • Can’t spare a dime? You can use facebook fundraisers to help us generate some donations just by leveraging your circle of friends to help out. Go to our facebook page and create a fundraiser. Set a goal of $300, $500, whatever you think might work. In the past several months we have had a number of folks in our community do this and generate important revenue for the cause.
  • Make A One Time Donation Today. A donation of any amount can help us weather this storm. If you’ve been considering making a donation, there is no better time than now. Seriously!
  • Become a Monthly Donor. While monthly donors contribute a small amount in the short run, it’s a huge part of our long term development plan. Contribute $10, $20, $50 per month…whatever you can afford. 
Whether you can help us now or not, we look forward to seeing you all soon. Stay safe with yourself and your loved ones, focus on the opportunities this might bring, and be thankful for everything you have.
