“Along with co-chairman Tricia Quick, we are honored to be chairs for the fifth annual Over the Big Top event,” said Mr. Perry. “The theme of this event is spectacular and we’ve had a lot of fun planning it. Center for Creative Education artists generously attended our committee party to teach us the mask making process just like in they do in the classroom with CCE programming for area school children. It was great to get a taste of the CCE experience of learning through the arts – all while planning a party.”
