Latest Updates for Florida - October 2011

Florida President Val Steinberg reports:

We just began our very first Florida chapter at the SOS Children's Village in Coconut Creek, and are very excited to have fifteen eager kids ready to learn how to play guitar!

I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome our new state Vice President, Ken Arfa, and recognize our current teaching instructors and assistants, Gary Klein and Daniel Braff.

I'd also like to thank all of you who graciously donated instruments to our program. They will be lovingly used by our students!
