The Edison Arts Society (EAS) supports this question because the EAS operates under the philosophy that the quality of life in any community is enriched when there is an active community of the arts.  Each year the EAS holds a wide range of events including art concerts for the enrichment of our community.   We believe so completely in the arts and the quality of life the arts provides to individuals, our educational system and our community as a whole that we have awarded and will continue to award scholarships to our music, theatre, visual art, literary or instrument students in our high schools. 

There are no free lunches, so I fear that there may be a small tax increase, but these tax dollars would certainly be well worth the joy and comfort music and the arts brings to so many people throughout their lifetime.
