I am excited to share with you the latest update about our new downtown community space – The North Fork Studio, located next to the library.
The North Fork Studio is a nonprofit organization serving the local area by promoting and building community, providing wholesome activities for our youth, and sponsoring programs that help those in need.
In 2002, a volunteer group of local citizens acquired the building, and organized a volunteer and hired work force to maintain and enhance the structure.
While preserving the historic, old barn charm of days gone by, the recent beautification of the 1,200 square foot interior is extremely comfortable for a variety of indoor activities. The renovations include an energy efficient heater/air conditioner, laminate wood flooring, refinished and painted walls, and improvements to meet ADA standards. In the near future, a small amphitheater will be built behind the building with a stage, sitting area and landscaping.
Over the years, The North Fork Studio has sponsored an after-school Internet Tutoring program via their free public Wi-fi, Game, Music and Movie nights, and ongoing workshops and classes.
All are welcomed to get involved with The Studio and share in this community space. Please consider making a tax-deductable donation. Your donation will help complete the renovation of the building and support programs. You can also help by becoming a Subscriber. This is a monthly donation, $15/month for individuals and $20/month for families. Subscribers get free admission to all Studio sponsored events and may use the space when it is not in use.
The newest option is for Event Rentals. The beautiful space can be rented for events, parties or meetings.The standard rental fee is $125. Events that align with the organization’s mission can be partially or entirely sponsored by The Studio.
Donations and Subscriptions are tax deductible and can be made on the website: www.nfstudio.org or by mail: P.O. Box 127, North Fork, CA 93643 or by calling 559-877-3267.
Last, but not least… The Studio welcomes the use of the space for ongoing classes. Dance, Yoga, and Music classes are on the monthly calendar already. Rental of the space for classes is quite affordable. Let us know your ideas!
