Prescott Special events 20; Verde Valley 1

September and October calendars shows huge difference in College providing special events to East and West sides of the County: 20 for the West side; 1 for the East side

The September and October special events schedule published by the College shows the huge difference in its view of where cultural events should be produced.  According to the schedule it has posted, so far there are 20 cultural events scheduled for the West side of the County during September and October to be held in the 1105 student auditorium (redeveloped into a Community College dinner theatre).  Only a single event is scheduled so far for the Verde Campus, which will be held in the large multi-use classroom in Building M (canned pop, possibly).  In fact, a check today (9/24/2015) by the Blog of the Verde Campus web site shows no events as being scheduled so far.  

The following is a chart of the announced programs for September and October, 2015.
