FRAMINGHAM, MA - Members and the general public are invited to attend the Amazing Things Arts Center’s Open House Welcome and Thank You Party on July 31 from 3 – 5 PM.

The formal Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and recognition of the Founding Benefactors will take place at 3:30. This event will celebrate what can be accomplished when many dedicated people work together. According to Amazing Things Board President Lee Mendenhall of Framingham, “We want to showcase our new Center and express our appreciation to the hundreds of people who have supported us in establishing something special in the Metro West/Framingham area.“ Executive Director Michael Moran added, “Amazing Things was founded on a vision of the arts as ‘a rich form of communication that allows us to meet, understand, and accept each other.’ The success of our new venture after only a year of operation tells us how much the community values our vision.”
