A while back, Rosemarie, executive director of the Hernando Youth Orchestra, wrote in asking for instruments that were not being used any longer. Rosemarie wrote back to say that the orchestra heard from dozens of people and received six instruments in three days, with several more being mailed to the group. She sends a big thanks to everyone who donated to the organization.
