Scholarships are available to Cortes Island youth enrolled in music lessons, and will be granted based on financial need. The application form is available as an attachment at the bottom of this article. They can also be picked up on the bulletin boards inside the Whaletown post office and in Manson’s Hall across from the post office window. The deadline for returning the applications is Friday, Oct. 1st. Please return to Box 53, Whaletown.
We are able to offer scholarships to island youth this year, due to the generous contributions from the Island Women’s Club, Alden Sherwood, Bruce Hipkin, a raffle sponsored by Heather and Michael Bruce, and several anonymous donors. In addition we raised funds at our Annual Young Musicians’ Concert Fundraiser, and received funding from a Community Gaming Grant. We are very grateful for the continued support from our community.
