Meet our New President,
Jessie is a familiar face within the arts and culture community. She is currently the Manager of Membership & Events at the Fitchburg Art Museum, serves on many boards in Fitchburg, and recently served on the FCA executive board as Secretary. We are extremely proud to welcome Jessie and look forward to her leadership!
A letter from
Jason Parris Fitz-Gerald
Hello Members, Friends, Supporters, and Acquaintances,
My sincere apologies for missing the Annual Meeting. I received my COVID vaccine on Monday and felt ill on Tuesday so I could not attend.
Thanks to Jennifer Jones, whom I met when I first came to Fitchburg in 2016. She was very instrumental in encouraging me to accept the position of President. She also helped me launch my presentation for National Night Out. So after serving 2 years as President, I think it only right for another person - JESSIE - to take the helm and steer FCA accordingly… and I am confident that she will. Good luck Jessie.
Needless to say that my time as a Fitchburg resident, FAM Docent, Artist, and community participant, and President of Fitchburg Cultural Alliance, have been fruitful. And positively added and expanded my focus to continue serving and building the platform that applauds, embrace, and celebrates diversity... to dance truly to my own innate rhythms...
And although I take leave to pursue my creative calling, I hope to continue my relationship with Fitchburg Cultural Alliance! Thanks,
