The Classical Music/Dinner on April 10th was very successful, thanks to good attendance, hard work by board members and HBI staff, melodious music-makers, and auction contributors and bidders.

The ladies of the Board of Directors led by Jeanne Stoppard, did a great job of organizing and handling the many details:- Val Barr, Tucker Dinnes, and Riki Vogt. Ruth Amiabel did a great job lining up donors of auction items, identified below.

Music was provided by Joyce Baker and Helen Moats, Annabelle Cameron, Heather Wilson, Jennifer Christensen, and Kevin Tuck – thanks to these talented volunteers for an enjoyable evening.
