Sharon Schmidt, a committee member for the celebration, confirmed that the event was a success. About 150 people attended.
“It’s a marvelous success,” Schmidt said. “It’s a visual and a performing art. It’s exactly what the Norris stands for. And it brought together the whole Fox Valley community, not just St. Charles.”
Displays noted highlights of the art center’s history through the decades, starting in 1977.
Lester and Dellora Norris’ pictures were displayed on a board with information about them being “childhood sweethearts.”
