MIFA Appreciation Luncheon

The Marco Island Foundation for the Arts (MIFA) held an appreciation luncheon at the home of MIFA President Karen Swanker to recognize Priscilla MacDonald and Sandi Johnson.

Priscilla organizes the Left Bank Art Fest outdoor shows that are sponsored by MIFA. She has been working to set up the events for over 10 years. All that planning — which involves getting permits, sending out the call to artists, advertising, arranging for security, putting out signs for the show, planning the show layout and helping the artists set-up — has been done mostly by herself and with the help of her son Tyler and husband Richard. Many thanks, Priscilla!

Sandi Johnson was one of the founding members of MIFA in 2003, and throughout the years has been a board member serving as president and treasurer. She retired from the board in 2018 and was given an Emeritus Status Award. The board is looking forward to her continued involvement as an advisor. Many thanks, Sandi!
