Jazz, Pizazz and Vino
Bill and I attended a benefit concert for the School of Piano Technology for the Blind at Bethany Vineyards Sunday night. The school is located here in Vancouver and is the only school in the world that teaches the blind how to tune pianos and start their own businesses using the skills they learn there.
This and other programs for the blind have a special place in our hearts. A good friend of Bill's from his time at West Point is blind and was just accepted into a program in Little Rock, Arkansas that trains the blind to work for the IRS. We just said goodbye to her this week as she goes off on her adventure and wish her well.
We enjoyed spending time with some of our friends from Rotary, drinking Bethany wine, and listening to the music performed by Tom Grant and Nancy Curtin.
