Ukuleles

THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the Lakeview Music Donor Choose project for ukuleles! Together, we raised enough money to get 90 ukuleles for the Lakeview Music program, AND for 90 padded cases from Jim's Music! The cases will be arriving soon, and students who have checked out a ukulele will get a case to replace their ukulele box.
