In May, the Musical Mentors arranged to have several of their young learners perform for the residents at Trillium Lodge. At this recital, one of the proud parents explained that she had kept their family’s piano, but private lessons for her daughter were beyond their means. One day she noticed the Musical Mentors brochures that the Society of Organized Services (SOS) staff display at their office. Soon the learner and her Musical Mentor were engaged in weekly lessons. This truly illustrates how a caring community works together to enrich the growth and development of its youth. But it all starts with the generous commitment of volunteer time and talent by this special team of already busy secondary school students, ably organized by this year’s student co-ordinator Zoey Cole.
