NLAC News - December 2022

Greetings from the Northern Lights Arts Council!

We have a lot of great things to look forward to this holiday season!

Community Band Holiday Concert
We’re kicking off the holiday season with the Community Band Holiday Concert on Monday, December 12 at 7:00pm at the Roxy Theater. Doors open 30 minutes before the performance and tickets will be available at the door, cash or check only. Prices are $10 for adults and $5 for students; kids 5 and under are free. The band, under the direction of Lane Lindseth and made up of local talent, has been rehearsing since September and is very excited for their first performance! Concessions will be available and the show should last about an hour.

Mingle & Jingle Brunch
The Langdon Area Chamber of Commerce, along with local businesses, is sponsoring the Mingle & Jingle Brunch on Sunday, December 18. It begins at 10:30am and will continue until 1:00pm or gone, concluding with Langdon Prairie Health Foundation’s Lights, Stars & Diamonds Ceremony. The meal is free will offering and prizes will be given out throughout the event. NLAC has arranged music for this event, which will feature solos and ensembles from various community artists.

Roxy Theater Fundraiser
The fun doesn’t stop after the new year rolls around! Mark your calendar for Friday, January 6 for burger night at the Eagles. NLAC and the Roxy committee will be taking over the grill & till, and all proceeds will benefit the Roxy Theater. Come for burgers and stay for music later in the evening! More details to come. The historic Roxy Theater has not had any major repairs completed for 25 years, and we need funds to be able to continue to upkeep the building. Last year, we drained the savings account to pay for a major roof repair due to water damage. The next project that needs to be completed is fixing up the marquee. It needs new lights, paint, and roof to maintain its shine on Main Street! This leads to another big announcement…

Giving Hearts Day
NLAC will be participating in Giving Hearts Day for the first time in 2023! Save the date for Thursday, February 9. The funds we raise will go towards the Roxy Theater, specifically to the projects listed above. Any donation of $10 or more on Giving Hearts Day will be matched, doubling your impact. If you’re looking for a way to support our organization, benefit our main street and community, and have your money go further, Giving Hearts Day is the perfect time to donate! We’ll be sharing more information about how to donate when the time gets closer. To participate in Giving Hearts Day, we need match donors. We are looking for individuals or businesses that donate ahead of time, to meet a goal to be able to participate. If you or your business is interested in becoming a match donor, please contact me at 701-305-0089.

Cheers to 30 years!
NLAC turns 30 in 2023 and we look forward to celebrating this milestone by honoring those that have supported us throughout the years and have a little fun along the way!
