Tonight we had a little farewell dinner for the Belmar Arts Council's first ever employee, Patrice Malone. As a part time administrative assistant, we expected her to answer the phones, help out with office functions, keep the Boatworks open a few days a week, and help coordinate some of the summer activities. She did so much more for us that she has spoiled us for whoever eventually succeeds her in the position. So before she heads out to sea, and then back to college, we felt she deserved a special treat- dinner at Klein's and a gift card to a favorite store. Patrice may be leaving the office, but she's not leaving the BAC- she'll continue to help us out with the cool internet newsletter she started this summer, and will be using her music connections to explore some possible future programs in Belmar.
