The Annual Volunteer Recognition and Celebration Dinner: Sunday, July 10

Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette will host the annual Volunteer Recognition and Celebration Dinner on Sunday, July 10 from 5:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheater, 4449 ST RD 43 N, West Lafayette.

We invite all volunteers who have participated with Civic Theatre in any form or function to celebrate - cast, musicians, crew, audience members, ushers, office workers, committee members ... everyone.

Every year hundreds of volunteers fill more than 800 volunteer opportunities at Civic Theatre. Their participation allows Civic Theatre to produce close to 100 performances every year. Civic Theatre is primarily a volunteer-driven organization. Outside of the professional staff of three, every position is filled by volunteers.

Dinner, plates and drinks will be provided. Attendees are asked to bring a side or a dessert to share. Dinner will be provided by Chef Tracy Rosa and Adelino's Old World Kitchen.

The annual event is Civic Theatre's way of thanking these critical volunteers for their valuable time and talents. Steven Koehler, Managing Director of Civic Theatre, said volunteers are the lifeblood of the organization.

"Without the time and talent that the hundreds of volunteers give every year, Civic Theatre would not be able to continue to produce the quality programming that we are known for. This gives us the opportunity to thank the many wonderful people who make up the Civic Theatre family," he said. "During the dinner, we also will highlight a select group from among the hundreds of people who volunteer. These particular volunteers have made a large impact, either over the past year, or over a lifetime."
