FOUNDERS AWARD RECOGNITION – FAIR & YEAGER INSURANCE CO. INC.
Fair & Yeager is a family-owned and run company located in Natick Center. Now in its 117th year as a local institution, Fair & Yeager is known for its service and dedication to the community.
In 2012, Arthur B. Fair III accepted TCAN’s invitation to join its Board of Directors and is an active member of the Finance Committee. In recent years, Mr. Fair has provided important leadership to the Town of Natick, its businesses and cultural organizations as Natick Center has evolved to become a regional cultural destination. Mr. Fair was among the first to recognize the important role that TCAN and other cultural assets play in attracting visitors and newcomers to Natick Center. In addition, Mr. Fair participated in the development of a strategic plan for Natick Center Cultural District. For several years, Fair & Yeager Insurance Co. has generously sponsored TCAN’s programming for children and families, and was among the first to support TCAN’s current Capital Campaign.
The Center for Arts in Natick was founded in 1997 and serves the MetroWest region by increasing opportunities to experience, participate in, and learn about the arts. Its initial success in a rented storefront became the foundation for a multi-year $2.5M capital campaign to restore Natick’s historic Central Firehouse building, originally constructed in 1875, as a dedicated performance space and gallery. The firehouse provides a home for over 200 concert events annually, year-round children’s theater and dance education programs, visual arts exhibits and receptions, and a thriving community theater organization. TCAN has since grown to become a leading nonprofit arts organization in MetroWest, with strong support from patrons and contributing members throughout the region.
TCAN is an authorized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
