This Month’s Newsletter: May 2020
The SteamPlant Event Center and Scout Hut remain closed for public events, but like most everyone we are striving to create new offerings through online programming and providing recommendations of cultural arts to the community. Until we are given a green light to open our doors again, the staff is working diligently to make improvements to the SteamPlant venue, both inside and out. We will continue bringing you a variety of cultural and educational offerings via online programs and experiences during this time. As the community begins to open up, we hope you will support local businesses in any way that you can during this time in a safe and healthy manner. We want to see everyone’s smiling faces when we welcome you back to the SteamPlant!
