Gary Tuma’s Statement Announcing Retirement

gary3

With great gratification and bitter-sweet emotions, we cheer for Gary as he continues onto the next chapter of his life. Gary has been with Walker’s Point Center for the Arts for nine years and brought tremendous stability and progress to the organization. We will miss him dearly and look forward to stories from his  adventures. ~Kate

You see, I grew up in family farm country where hard work was a given from the earliest of age. Read more →
