The hills are alive with the sound of....drums!

Once word got out in the spring of 2018 that the St. Nicholas Project was going to host a tea party fundraiser to provide an opportunity for donors to give money to purchase musical instruments for the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children, we realized that we had one problem. We had more people who wanted to attend than space. (More about the tea party in another blog). But some people were very generous and donated actual musical instruments. I traveled to Essex Jct. Vermont, to the home of a couple who had a very nice drum set that their grown up, out-of-the-house children never use anymore. So, believe it or not, a disassembled drum set will fit into a Ford Fusion. I delivered it to Kurn Hattin--much to the delight of the music director. Because they are a charitable institution, all of their musical instruments are purchased through money friends like you give to them. I would love for you to donate a gently used musical instrument you might still have around the house that nobody is playing anymore. We especially are looking for trumpets, trombones, saxophones, flutes and clarinets. If you would like to make a financial donation for the purchase of an instrument please visit their website at: Won't you please help us to continue to make the hills in Southern Vermont stay alive with the sound of music?

A drum set donated to Kurn Hattin Homes for Children by a lovely couple in Essex Jct, VT. I took it apart to make it fit in my car. The snares rattled the whole 2.5 hour trip to the children's home!
