SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – The Board of Selectmen is seeking parties interested in serving on our cultural council. The Shrewsbury Cultural Council receives funds from the Massachusetts Cultural Council which allots a specific percentage annually to each local cultural council throughout the Commonwealth through funding generated by the State Lottery Commission. The Shrewsbury Cultural Council then in turn makes local grants for eligible activities and programs.
Cultural Council members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen for three year terms and may serve up to two terms.
Interested persons are asked to submit a letter of interest to the Board of Selectmen, 100 Maple Avenue, Shrewsbury, MA by Thursday, February 7, 2013
