Families from Southbridge and Natick recognized in end-of-year membership campaign

Members are the heart of TCAN, and our 2023 Membership Drive aspired to grow the community of TCAN members and thank new and renewing members who joined in November and December of 2023. 

We are pleased to recognize The Kilroy family of Natick, MA, and the Merriam family of Southbridge, MA, both of whom will receive an exclusive benefit to use in 2024.

Kara and Conor Kilroy, members since early 2023, renewed their membership and were selected to receive an upgrade to Superstar Level Membership, which includes an ALL-ACCESS pass for all regular movie screenings for 2024. Kara Kilroy, a health care professional at Boston Child Study Center in Boston, expressed her support this way:

TCAN brings so much entertainment and culturally relevant programming to Natick Center, and we feel fortunate to have TCAN in our backyard! From the “Distractors” movie screening to viewing the Oscar nominated short films and seeing programming on the main stage, TCAN has brought us so much enjoyment this past year!

Laura and Stephen Merriam have been members and frequent attendees of TCAN since 2016 and were selected in a random drawing to receive a $150 TCAN Gift Card. Driving regularly from Southbridge, MA (near Sturbridge) to TCAN for four events each year, Stephen offered this heartfelt endorsement: 

TCAN is a “hidden gem” of a performing arts center, and we have enjoyed seeing many performances here over the years. It is a joy to see top musical talent in such a friendly and intimate setting. Congratulations on the wonderful job that you all do in providing such an amazing experience!

During the two months of the membership campaign, TCAN welcomed 348 new and renewing members from across the MetroWest region and beyond. TCAN would also like to recognize the members listed below who joined or renewed at the Feature Level and above, who will receive an exclusive and highly coveted TCAN Insulated Travel Cup bearing our new logo.
