Community Service Projects

The Arts CSP

Margaret Harris, Chair

The Arts CSP strives to inform and educate members of our Club and the community of diverse cultural opportunities in Smithfield and the surrounding area. We provide various art classes, programs, field trips, as well as supporting events (art exhibitions, music, theater, etc.). You don't need to be an artist, just possess an interest in The Arts and it's promotion. We showcase our talented Club members in February with an Annual Arts & Crafts Contest.
