LETTER: Article should have been a thank you

Your article about the obstacles overcome by hundreds of volunteers, donors and employees of Vashon Center for the Arts in managing to deliver an incredible gift to Vashon should have been a huge thank you. Instead, you choose to slant it as though you have discovered some huge improprieties. Your editorial comments were especially inappropriate and insulting. Hopefully your article and editorial will not deter anyone from continuing to support VCA in its ongoing artistic and educational mission. Clearly, there are virtually no arts organizations anywhere that are self-sustaining. They only work with the blessing of donors, volunteers, dedicated artists and employees.
