We have had continued growth and success with each program and production that OPA offers, and for that we are grateful. While the revenue from each program helps to sustain the program itself, it does not allow for continued improvements and maintenance of the building and the grounds. All fees received from Blue Circle Club memberships are used to improve the quality of existing programs and upgrade equipment, as well as improve and maintain the building and grounds.
