Visitors to the Bowlus Fine Arts Center soon will be able to enjoy a drink and a show.

Alcohol sales soon will be allowed at some events at the Bowlus, after members of the Bowlus Commission and USD 257 board members agreed to make a number of policy changes. 

The changes mostly involved insurance liability, moving the responsibility for maintaining insurance from USD 257 to the Bowlus itself. The original Bowlus Trust put that responsibility under the school district out of convenience, Bowlus executive director Daniel Kays said, but it sometimes limits the use and nature of activities at the center.
