During the several months that the Adirondack Folk School was closed, they lost a third of their year’s usual class revenue and were unable to host their planned 10th anniversary fundraisers — “Hearts for the Arts” and “Christmas in July.”
Their friends and supporters however hung with them through a difficult financial position while they worked hard to gather their resources and continue a sustainable path. Before they closed, many of their vendors, instructors, and compatriots donated several items for that “Hearts for the Arts” Silent Auction.
The first thing they did upon reopening was to contact donors to return the items which they so generously contributed. The donors insisted that the Adirondack Folk School put their donations to good use.
