New this year! Our generous community partner, Think Mutual Bank, is sponsoring free horse-drawn wagon rides on four dates for our “Music in Kelley Park” concert series. You will have an opportunity to ride in the same wagon that our own Mayor Mary rides in the Fourth of July parades each year. Our grateful thanks both to Think Mutual Bank and to Lazy K Ranch for providing this fun activity! You can ride the wagon on June 5, June 19, July 10, or July 24.
It is with great sadness that the Apple Valley Arts Foundation says goodbye to Board of Directors member David L. Pyle. David served on the Board of Directors for approximately one year, but was a long-time admirer of the arts, frequenting concerts at different venues around the Twin Cities area. He chose to serve on the Board because of his dedication to arts for all. David believed strongly that the AVAF should take a leading role in exposing all residents of Apple Valley to differing arts experiences, especially those representing the varying cultural and ethnic backgrounds in our community.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, April 17, 2015 at White Funeral Home, 14560 Pennock Avenue in Apple Valley.
We will miss you, Dave.
