Local Arts and Culture Partners to Sign Springfield Compact
SPRINGFIELD — The Springfield Central Cultural District, the Springfield Cultural Council, the city of Springfield, and the Mass Cultural Council will announce a new and formal cultural relationship with a compact signing on Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 10:30 a.m. at City Hall, Room 220.

Participants at the ceremony will include Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno; Anita Walker, executive director, Mass Cultural Council; Arreen Andrew, local cultural council program officer, Mass Cultural Council; Scott Hanson, principal planner, city of Springfield; Andrew Cade, chair, Springfield Cultural Council; Morgan Drewniany, executive director, Springfield Central Cultural District; and Eileen McCaffery, chair, Springfield Central Cultural District.
