As volunteers with the Angelo Civic Theater for almost a decade, they have put in thousands of hours assisting in reaching the theater's goals, hosting many and varied productions and seeing that performances run smoothly. They have even acted in several of the theater's productions.
Their unmatched commitment to the Theater's goals and dedication to their work reflect favorably on the organization's staff and crew, and has earned them the title of the theater's "personal angels." They have devoted themselves to supporting theater arts and the mission and staff of the Angelo Civic Theater in the Concho Valley. Jan and Buck have developed a successful volunteer usher program for the theater's productions as well as selling and inventory of concessions.
