Chelsea resident Gary Munce has held many volunteer gigs. One of his favorites is being the entertainment adviser for Chelsea Area Festivals and Events, producer of Sounds and Sights, and the Chelsea Sculpture Walk. You can hear Gary’s love for what he does and his community when he joins "creative:impact" co-hosts Deb Polich of Creative Washtenaw and WEMU’s David Fair.
