At the Shoreline Arts Festival on Saturday, June 25, David Endicott of Music4Life presented a flute and a new 4/4 (full sized) violin to music teacher Leann Rozema, Superintendent Miner’s representative to Music4Life.
And on Wednesday, June 28, he presented a very unusual convertible (slide/valve) trombone to Shoreline Schools that was accepted for Leann by Shorecrest Office Manager Marlys Pickrell.

More are on the way before we close our year out on August 31st. Our goal is to deliver as many instruments as possible to Shoreline and our other participating school districts before school starts.
During the Festival Endicott took in a trombone, an acoustic guitar, a violin, a flute, and numerous financial donations.
The money will be used to refurbish the instruments, which will then be donated to one of the school districts affiliated with Music4Life.
"We want every child to have a chance to play an instrument, regardless of their family's financial situation."
Endicott was interviewed by KING TV on Saturday as part of the Shoreline Arts Festival. The segment aired Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
