Scholarship fund for summer music camp
A new fund has been established to support scholarships, music and supplies for the Pipestone Summer Music Camp in honor of Lester Boccuzzi.
Boccuzzi, who passed away in January at the age of 94, had a unique, buoyant spirit that made him a great supporter of children — and, in particular, of children who played music.
Donations to the Boccuzzi music camp fund should be sent to the Pipestone School of Music, P.O. Box 1013, Twisp, WA 98856. Please mention the fund so the donation can be properly applied.
