Ethos Music Center
Yesterday was Nike's staff community involvement day, and we library folk volunteered to help out at the ethos music center in No Portland. It is a really great place that teaches 300 kids per week to play various instruments, read music, etc. They just got a new building on the corner of Williams & Killingsworth, and they really need help getitng it all set up. I really loved the people I met and we had a great time cleaning & tuning instruments and painting pottery for their up-coming non-profit coffee shop. We got to listen to a CD from rock 'n' roll camp- and there is nothing as rad as 30 kids singing "I Want to Break Free!" My fantasy is that I can get all of my friends to come in and help as a group one day for fun. It would be rad. All the stuff they need people to do is like a million times more fun than anything anyone does in their day job!
