LACA & Community

Although the Lebanon Art and Crafts Association is an art related organization, LACA has a long tradition of being actively involved in the community in ways that extend beyond the world of art. Each year LACA members pool their talent, time, and money to help local organizations.

Lebanon Art and Crafts Association Scholarhip in Memory of Alden Burt Award for Area High School Students

As financially able, LACA annually presents awards to Upper Valley high school students who plan to continue their education in one of the fields of art. Since 1999, LACA has donated over $13,000 to qualified high school seniors pursuing a degree in the arts.

This award is called the Lebanon Art and Crafts Association Scholarship in Memory of Alden Burt. Alden Burt was not only a founding member of the Association, but a long-time and much beloved art teacher in the Lebanon School District.

Other Community Involvement

Typical community involvement has included: donating to nearby summer camps, donating to local food banks, making decorative felt bags filled with soap and lotions, playing cards, toothbrushes, notepads, candy, and other small items to be distributed to the residents of a county nursing home or to patients at the Veterans Administration Hospital on the Fourth of July or Christmas day.
