VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH - Darrell Steinke
Darrell donates his knowledge of IT, mechanics, and band management to HCAC whenever called upon. Darrell was a star volunteer at the first annual Smoky Mountain Bluegrass Festival where he managed all the bands’ needs and helped with loading all the equipment which took hours. Since then, Darrell has been our right-hand man when it comes to fixing printers, computers, telephones, and building cabinets. Thank you, Darrell for never making fun of us when all we needed to do was plug something in! HCAC is lucky to have Darrell as a volunteer!
SPECIAL VOLUNTEER PROJECTS
September 2021, BearWaters Brewing Company: Riverside Mural Project
HCAC’s Marketing & Membership Coordinator, Lauren Medford was approached about painting a mural for Canton’s Bearwaters Brewing Company. The local business was flooded after tropical storm, Fred in August. Lauren jumped into action by designing the mural and organizing our talented artist members and volunteers. Medford explains, “many of our artist members and volunteers asked how they can help those in our community affected by the severe flooding. When this opportunity was presented, HCAC knew this would be a great way for us to give back to our community in a creative way!”
If you would like to be involved in our next special project, become an artist member to receive our “Artist Member Top Two Newsletter” which highlights two weekly opportunities for artists!
Docenting is perhaps the most important volunteer activity anyone can donate to HCAC. Docents keep our gallery open and allow HCAC to promote and sell artist member artwork. HCAC would not be where it is today without many dedicated individuals who give their time by sitting behind our docent desk, selling artwork and promoting HCAC programs.

QUILT BLOCK PAINTING
HCAC’s quilt block program is almost 100% volunteer run. Program Coordinator Janet Steinke donates her time ordering and picking up supplies, coordinating with volunteers, designers, and customers, and painting the blocks.
