On September 21st, Joe’s M.I.L.L. staff and board members recognized KVCI students Elliot Sinclair and Emile Flavin, along with their civics teacher, Mr. Bischof, for their donation of $5,000 that they earned through the Youth and Philanthrophy (YIP) Initiative in the 2012-2013 school year.
“We are very proud of Elliot and Emile for their leadership skills for their civics initiative in preparing and presenting the winning papers that were presented to a group of their peers who acted as judges” said Terry Snider, President. Their initiative won the $5,000.00 award and the students chose Joe’s M.I.L.L. as the recipient.

Sponsor Us and Keep the Magic of Music Moving
Every month many of us need your help! Keeping our family of over 600 instruments in good health is a challenge. It takes money to buy strings, repair cracks, buy new reeds, re-hair bows, remove dents from horns, replace broken pegs, buy picks, drum sticks, new drum heads, mouthpieces, rosin, fix cases, and the list goes on………………….
