Leanne Harter came in to warn us our property taxes are due and to let us know campgrounds at Hickory Grove Park and Dakins Lake will be accepting reservations this year. Shon Stephenson, Operations Manager at Ames Children’s Choirs, came in with Chris Johnson, guest conductor for the "Celebrate Singing Choral Festival" by the Ames Children’s Choirs. Johnson is choral music director at Roland-Story Middle School and Gilbert Vocal Music Director at the Intermediate and Middle Schools there.
Young people's voices will also be heard at the "March for our Lives" on Saturday afternoon, March 24, throughout the country. We ended the program hearing from Landra Reece and Isabela O'Connor, organizers for March For Our Lives event at the Capitol in Des Moines, one of the 823 events worldwide. We also heard about Unity In The Community offering free HIRTA bus transportation to to that event. Our guests spoke of their conviction that committed people 18 and younger can lead the way in creating a safer world as they come of age.
