I want to wish a very happy Veterans Day to all of you who have served our military in any capacity. Your sacrifices do not go unnoticed or unappreciated; thank you all for your contributions to our community.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to offer even the smallest token of appreciation to you all and your families with DNACA’s Arts for Veterans program through the California Arts Council. I would also like to thank our partners, VFW Post 1381, the Veterans Service Office, and the Del Norte Senior Center, who provide space for these workshops. DNACA and I both value these relationships immensely.

We hope to share with you our upcoming drum circle next Saturday, as well as our guitar, visual arts, and creative writing classes. May you all feel the gratitude of your community members year-round.

Stephanie Wenning,
