Presser Performing Arts Society Recipient of State Grant

The Presser Performing Arts Society in Mexico is the recipient of a $14,086 grant from the Missouri Arts Council. According to the council, the money is to be used for community arts operating support. Presser Executive Director Lois Brace says the grant will be used for things like salary support, equipment for special programming and program expenses. She says it won’t be used for things like utilities. Brace says the money will really help but the entity is always looking for monetary support. Presser was one of 331 entities across the state of Missouri to receive an award from the arts council.
