This October, the Shemer Art Center hosted a reception to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Meet Mr./Mrs. column, which runs each month in The Arcadia News. This festive evening highlighted the 60 Arcadia residents profiled in this section of the newspaper over the past five years, all of which were written by Ray Artique! This event also allowed Ray to thank everyone for the opportunity to write these profiles for The Arcadia News, which carries forward a column his dad used to write for The Phoenix Gazette. As a result, the Shemer was introduced to many Arcadia residents who had never been here before or for a while! Thank you Ray for providing the opportunity for us to meet more of our neighbors! Thank you also to Greg Bruns, publisher of The Arcadia News, for the great job you do of highlighting the people and businesses that make Arcadia great!
