IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR THE MURAL ARTS TROLLEY TOUR:
As anticipated, The Mural Arts Tour is near capacity!
As of 7/20/2014 All five trolleys are full! We are just under 200 attendees! Rather than start a wait list or turn members away, we have arranged for additional tours to be provided on large air conditioned motor coaches. This option is also available to paid members who may be unable to navigate on the smaller trolleys. We will notify chapters when the 5 motor coaches have been filled! All tour vehicles will depart in the morning starting at 10 AM in fifteen minute intervals, the last bus/trolley to leave no later than 11 AM. Please check back often for updates!
FOR MEMBERS ONLY: Earn a FREE ticket to the Mural Arts Trolley Tour! The AGTS-DV member who “likes” the most posts on our Facebook page between July 14 and September 8, 2014 will receive a FREE ticket to the Mural Arts Trolley Tour. So, visit our Facebook page and “like” our posts often. Good luck!
Our October Lecture is not a conventional lecture-it is a Mural Arts Trolley Tour on Wednesday ,October 8, 2014. The tour will be customized to encompass as many of the murals in our portfolios as possible.
The fee for the tour is $18 for members and $23 for guests. Guests will be listed on a standby basis, after all AGTS members are accommodated. We will make every effort to keep groups together, but we must fill each trolley completely, so it is possible some groups may be broken up.
Please sign up with your chapter chair (registration forms will be sent to them soon). Make checks payable to “Art Goes to School”.
Space is limited,Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis and payment must accompany registration. No phone orders will be taken.The deadline for signing up is September 8. More details including travel suggestions may be found under the “Member Information” tab, select “Calendar of Events” and scroll down to the “Mural Arts Trolley Tour”.

An easy way to contribute to AGTS:
How does the TD Bank Affinity Program work?
TD Bank will make an annual contribution to AGTS if 50 accounts are linked to the AGTS’ Affinity Program. The amount of TD Bank’s contribution is based on the average annual balance in the account of the customers who join the Affinity Program. Joining the program does NOT alter the terms or condition of your TD Bank accounts, and none of your funds or personal information will be given to AGTS.
Do you have an individual or business account at TD Bank?
If you do, please tell TD Bank you want to join AGTS Foundation’s Affinity Program (#AF320). Raising funds for AGTS does not get any easier than this!
By joining the Affinity Program, AGTS will receive an annual contribution from TD Bank simply because you bank there!
