BACKGROUND:

At the August 25, 2022, City Commission Meeting, the City Commission appointed Laura McDermott Matheric to serve as the City’s first Poet Laureate for a two-year term.  Her role is to promote poetry and the literary arts to all sectors of the community and encourage the reading of existing and new poetry at civic occasions, local celebrations, and City-sponsored events.   

During that meeting, a discussion ensued regarding the desire to provide a donation for Ms. McDermott Matheric’s services.  A collection was taken amongst the City Commission and a donation of $500 will be presented to our new Poet Laureate, Laura McDermott-Matheric.
