A friendly tone; frequently updated content; well-placed, logical, and consistent navigation; and easy readability - all these things make up a very pleasant web site. The site has a fresh and open feeling and serves its purpose admirably.
Suggestions:
  1. I notice you are using XHTML. This causes no problems in my IE6 browser. Have you viewed your page in various browsers to see whether it always displays as you intended?
     
  2. Your site serves as a newsletter for those already participating in your activities. Since you are also sharing information with the world Internet community, you might want to put a short welcome and introductory paragraph right there on the home page. If you feel the material currently listed on the home page must remain here, you could add a third column for "notices."
     
  3. You updated your home page with an ad for the Easter Drama Festival.The image is quite attractive except for the text which lacks clarity. Perhaps a smaller version would serve just as well.
     
  4. A sitemap is always a nice addition. But the search engine seems hardly worth the time and effort needed to keep it up to date.
