This is one of the many areas of work that Mitch contributed to the arts community as a builder. Mitch worked tirelessly to ensure the health of the PA Arts Board and the of the E.A. Rawlinson Centre. His commitment to the growth of the Centre was incredible. Further, Mitch, Sheila and their family all performed on stage in many Broadway North productions, and have demonstrated great commitment to the arts community in Prince Albert.
Arts Organization: The Prince Albert Council for the Arts was established in 1967 by a group of volunteers to maintain and sponsor artistic activities in Prince Albert. In 1975 the Council joined OSAC and they remain a member to this day. Their efforts have meant that people can learn, pursue, and appreciate all arts forms here in Prince Albert.
