Dear Editor:

For those who are unaware, I wish to draw attention to the young musicians who comprise the Silver Strings Ukelele Band under the leadership of talented Leisa OSullivan, successor to the talented Bruce Childs.

These young people may be construed as ambassadors of giving and goodwill and Invermere is noted for the musical tours the group makes.

A total of 51 students accompanied by 16 adults as chaperones in 2 buses, have just returned from a very successful tour to Kelowna June 5th through June 8th, where they played six concerts at elementary schools and one concert at a seniors centre.

To plan and organize such tours is a considerable undertaking that Leisa does herself with the students raising funds to do so themselves.

Many congratulations to all these young musicians who also entertain locally at our own seniors centers. Very well done to all participants.

Margaret OSullivan
