From the Desk of
Thank you for visiting the Cultural Arts Society of Fuquay-Varina (CASF-V) site. I am Dr. Evelyn B. Wicker, current Chairperson, and a member since the inception of CASF-V. I am very proud to welcome you to our site.
DR. EVELYN WICKER
The initial idea of CASF-V, a 501(c)(3)organization, was formed from a conversation between, the founder, Romie Burt, Jr. a local resident and Mayor John Byrne as they traveled to Dunn, NC in 2003, to attend a celebration for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On the ride home, they had the idea of forming a committee, in Fuquay-Varina, to honor Dr. King. By 2004, the idea had come to fruition!
As a life-long resident of this community and I have seen many positive changes relative to increased diversity. The CASF-V has worked to celebrate this rich diversity, here in Fuquay-Varina, for fourteen years now.
Our purpose is “to appreciate and celebrate diverse cultures in the Fuquay-Varina community” with current goals to sponsor annual cultural festivals and the annual celebration of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Please read through our site for more details on the 2019 Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. day to be held on January 21, 2019. Please also see information on the upcoming International Cultural Festival that will take place on April 27, 2019, to be held at the new Fuquay-Varina Arts Center!
Let me also take a moment to invite you to become involved in the CASF-V. As a working board, we continue to seek members and or special volunteers who have an interest and willingness to commit to the purpose and goals of CASF-V. Persons of any age, race, or color with a genuine interest in promoting diversity in the Fuquay-Varina Community are welcome. As we grow with new members, we gain new ideas, knowledge and talent, which help us to represent the growing diversity of our community. Join us!
