    ARIEL Joins in Celebration of Military Children

    Porter Youth Center

    Saturday, April 7, 2018

    The Celebration of Military Children occurred on April 7, 2018. There were presentations and speeches in support of the children of military families who are annually recognized for their resiliency and important role in the military family.

    At the event, we engaged children and families with drawings for discounted or free tickets to productions, while educating them about ARIEL programs and answering questions they may have about our mission.

    Gladly representing ARIEL Theatrical were: Sandra and Renee Ortega, volunteers;  Heather Kirk, executive director; Frank Kragh and Alan Liddle, ARIEL Board trustees.
