The Athenian Society P.O. Box 8143 Roanoke, VA 24014
JAMES C. SEARS, Ed.D
President and General Manager,
Center in the Square
"The Athenian Society is a splendid organization of dedicated civic-minded individuals who have significantly contributed to the success of Center in the Square. When we speak of the remarkable turnaround of downtown and the increased educational opportunities for the area's children, we must recognize the Athenians for helping make all this possible."
"Every Athenian should feel proud of her work for Center in the Square, as her work is reflected in our caring and concern for the many families and children who visit daily. With the inspiration, thoughtfulness and encouragement of every Athenian, Center is much more than it would be otherwise."
A combination social event and educational experience are the spring and fall field trips. The well-organized day trips have enlightened many long-time area residents as well as those members who have recently moved to the Roanoke Valley. A thorough familiarity with important regional sites of interest becomes an asset to Athenians as they fulfill their most important role in the Roanoke arts community - that of greeting visitors and providing information at the Information Desk at Center in the Square.
