In the Fall issue of FACES Magazine, Pat Burchill of US Bank, stressed the importance of the arts in the community. The following is a quote from his profile.
‘Allied Arts Fund’s 2012 Campaign has many loyal and enthusiastic givers, but none more loyal than Pat Burchill, arts supporter, community leader and President of US Bank, Rapid City. Whenever asked about the importance of the arts, Burchill is quick with advice shared by Jim Mirehouse. Pat said, “Jim told me to always remember and support the arts. The arts are as important to the community as are good schools, good jobs, and a good business climate.”‘
