It was a warm, pleasant evening on June 16th.
Those who attended the Blue Skies Big Band concert enjoyed a mired of musical treasures and fabulous entertainment. These musicians and entertainers were nothing short of exceptional in performance and musicianship. They were also a dream to work with and extremely gracious.
We want to thank the Blue Skies Big Band for their concert, and thank you to those who attended the concert. Because of your generosity, EFEE raised $283.00 in profit. That's enough to sponsor a school event or part of an education grant.
This Spring, EFEE awarded a grant to the Hazardville Memorial School to fund a visit by the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. The students learned about service dogs and how they contribute to our society. This program was a supplement to the One School, One Book initiative.
EFEE was pleased to receive pictures from the visit and a large envelope of handwritten thank you notes from appreciative Hazardville students. We read and loved every one of those notes! One student asked,
'where did you get the money?' How sweet of you to ask. We get the money to help bring these special programs to your school from people who care about Enfield's children! We are so glad you enjoyed the program.
