Plaque Memorializes Avalon Performing Arts Council

Posted November 14th 2022

The Avalon Performing Arts Council was honored in September with a proclamation and a plaque from the mayor’s office for its 39 years of service to the community through the arts.

The organization disbanded at the end of 2021, mostly due to a decreasing full-time resident population and the effects of the pandemic.

Ramona Sanabria, who served as its president, said the organization was founded to celebrate all varieties of the arts by sponsoring performances, dances, musical concerts, art shows and more.

“As one of many nonprofit organizations in town, APAC involved and exposed full-time residents and seasonal visitors to cultural and artistic events,” Sanabria said.

Avalon Borough Council President Sam Wierman and Business Administrator Scott Wahl presented APAC with the proclamation and plaque at a ceremony in September.

The plaque, which names many of the key figures in APAC’s history from its creation in 1982, will be displayed at the Avalon Senior Center.

“Many of the early movers and shakers of the Avalon community served on the board or volunteered for years to assist and support the APAC board and mission,” Sanabria said. “So, getting this proclamation and plaque will honor those who served and will be memorialized for years to come.”
