All is well at the MAC.

Those were the words of Dave Klinger, member and former vice president of the Oceanside Community Arts Council, which owns the McMillan Arts Centre. In a letter to members and users of the MAC following a meeting on November 4, Klinger said the OCAC’s focus on the arts in Oceanside has new priority. There will be active and expanded coordination, development and promotion of the arts within the Oceanside area, as well as the crucial responsibility of operating The MAC as a viable and contributing arts centre, he said in the letter. All bookings in place will run as planned and the OCAC will shortly have a new interim Board of Directors until its regular board elections at the May 2014 Annual General Meeting. Stay tuned for more coverage on the MAC and its new direction coming up in The NEWS.                                                             —NEWS Staff
