Rachel Tews helps make Deane Little Beans an outstanding program
WELLSBORO — Kevin Connelly, executive director of the Deane Center for the Performing Arts and four members of the Deane Center Board of Directors, Lowell Coolidge, Gene Seelye, Scott Bastian and Sheilah Prevost, presented a nine by twelve-inch rosewood piano finish plaque to Rachel Tews, owner of The Fifth Season, Store Manager Susan Graver and Assistant Manager Mary Powell.
The inscription on the plaque’s floating glass panel reads: “In recognition of the effort, support and guidance that Rachel Tews and The Fifth Season Team have provided in making the Deane Little Beans an outstanding program accessible to thousands of area children, Thank you!”
The presentation was made in the Deane Center lobby at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro just prior to the start of the popular Deane Little Beans Photos With Santa event on Friday, Dec. 9.
Deane Little Beans is a free program offered to children between the ages of 3 to 12 and sometimes older children depending on the nature of the program. The Fifth Season has been instrumental in organizing four of the Deane Little Beans programs every year, including the Harvest Celebration, Making and Decorating Gingerbread Houses, Photos with Santa, and the newest, the Winter Celebration being held this year on Feb. 18 during the four-day Wellsboro Winter Celebration. The programs are given in the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre and/or the main lobby.
Other free Deane Little Beans programs planned by Deane Center staff are held in the theater, lobby or on the center’s outdoor stage and/or lawn area bordered by Central Avenue and Main Street.
The Fifth Season includes two separate retail spaces in the Deane Center with home décor and gifts on one side of the lobby and a boutique on the other. They each have separate Main Street entrances and are accessible from the lobby.
