With the cancellation of the remaining indoor percussion and guard seasons due to COVID-19, our parents suddenly found themselves with a large amount of free time on their hands (likewise with our students!).
During this down time, one of our former DSMA board members and “sewing circle” parents Greg Jones decided he wanted to help our community by sewing some masks to help healthcare professionals who worried about running out of critical supplies.
Greg reached out to other parents who would have been working on costumes and they quickly began working together to make masks. All of their effort was recently recognized by the Dartmouth Week newspaper, and the article can be read at this link.
THANK YOU to Greg, Lisa Perry, and all of our parents for stepping up to help out!!
