Eleven incoming freshmen students of the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy of Wilkes University recently partnered with the South Wilkes-Barre Residents’ Association in the beautification of the grounds of the Circle Centre for the Arts, home of the Wyoming Valley Art League. The students trimmed bushes, picked up litter and debris, raked leaves and gravel and weeded the entire grounds surrounding the building. The Wyoming Valley Art League at the Circle Centre for the Arts is a non-profit, community-wide arts organization committed to promoting the arts in the Wyoming Valley region and was formed to create a space for artists to explore, create and exchange ideas, as well as foster community engagement through the arts. The Wyoming Valley Art League at the Circle Centre for the Arts is located at Rear 130 South Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre, and is a proud member of the Art Block in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
