The floods of last year and recent torrential rains have done structural damage to the Boatworks, the home of the Belmar Arts Council. After consultation with Belmar borough officials, we will be taking down and rebuilding the stage area of the building. BelmarArts will remain open during the construction, and we will work to keep any disruption of normal activity to a minimum. BelmarArts is a membership organization that finances its activities through membership dues, donations, and grants. This new challenge will significantly stretch our 2013 budget. We hope that you will be generous with your support and contributions.
