  3. Treasurer
    Lydia Moyer
    Lydia grew up in a family where the arts were appreciated, pursued and celebrated. She is one of 4 siblings where each one studied music and participated in an elite high school program. As a result of those experiences in music she has learned a great appreciation for the arts which she desires to instill in her own family and throughout the lower valley. In 2010 she earned her bookkeeping degree at CBC while raising her 5 children. Her education has continued to be a blessing to her and her family. With her skills she has been able to serve a wide range of businesses including non-profit organizations, farming and local entrepreneurs. Now Lydia is excited to lend her skills and passion to Valley Performing Arts in its growth.
