Rangeley Friends of the Arts was recently awarded a Skowhegan Saving Bank grant of $2,000 to subsidize its music and dance lesson and community theater programs.

Millie Hoekstra, RFA president, received the grant from Dawn Field, manager of the Rangeley Branch of the Skowhegan Savings Bank.

The funds are part of Skowhegan Savings Bank’s Charitable Foundation that supports local causes.

The RFA is a nonprofit organization bringing the arts to life in the Rangeley Lakes Region; learn about their programs at www.rangeleyarts.org.
