Many months ago, I was listening to NPR, while getting ready for work. They ran a story about a Mariachi Summer Camp, in Santa Rosa, CA. You can listen to the full the story here.  I enjoyed the story thinking it was a really great idea for a summer camp. Fast forward to present and me dealing with my storage space. The rent kept going up, up, up, which finally forced me to deal with editing down all the stuff which I had been ignoring, happily in denial. Enough was enough and in the grim prospect of cleaning the unit out, I saw that I had not one, but two guitars sitting unused for well over 20 years. Remembering the program about the Mariachi Summer camp, at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, I gave them a call to inquire about donation. Naturally they were interested in taking the guitars, and I am super pleased that they will be put to good use and get into the hands of kids learning to play Mariachi!
