The Hanover Arts and Activities Center is a non-profit organization that sponsors and supports community events. We are run by a Board of Directors and community volunteers who work to continue the mission of the center. Our board is comprised of thirty-two active members, serving on various committees throughout the year. Meetings are held monthly for discussion and decision-making. New members are welcomed once a year, in the spring and are voted on by the existing board. For more information on the center (HAAC), visit www.hanoverarts.org

February Member Profile: Patrick Warren
Patrick Warren is a wonderful addition to our board and also the youngest board member. Thanks for keeping us on our toes Patrick! Did you know that Patrick was one of the first Hanover Idols and also sang one of the best versions of Mustang Sally in the Ashland Musical Variety Show that's ever been heard on the East Coast? You may have recently seen him selling tickets at our Hullabaloo party a couple of weeks ago too or dancing with his lovely wife Casey. We love having Patrick on our board and look forward to many more years of his positive spirit and dedication to the center!
Hullabaloo dancing-go Paige!

HAAC Fact #2
The Hanover Arts and Activities Center Board of Directors began in 1968 and has been an all volunteer group since then? Many board members serve two, three-year terms and miss it so much, they wait one year and then join again! That's dedication to our glorious 'Center of the Center'!

HAAC's Executive Director-Faith Boyle
We are so lucky to have such an amazing executive director to keep us all informed, fed, and organized! Faith Boyle has been running the center for quite some time now and is our go-to-girl for grant writing, booking the center and a multitude of other jobs, which are far too many to mention! We are so grateful for her guidance and expertise and her ability to manage several things at once! If you need her, feel free to contact her at the center: www.hanoverarts.org.
