The Bowen Center for the Arts held an ice cream social last month to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of fall events. Barbara Vermillion, president of the Bowen board of directors, said the event was a community function to promote the Bowen, which routinely hosts art exhibits, fundraisers, musical groups, classes, luncheons, summer camps and much more. Vermillion said that the money for the social came from a donation from the Big Canoe Women’s Guild, which donated money for kids’ summer programs this year. Now that the programs are over, the leftover money was used for the back-to-school event.
