As you may know, Hilary is playing in the Minnesota Youth Symphony, which is kind of a big deal. As you can imagine, it’s not cheap to run a thing like that, and there is fundraising. For those who would normally give Hilary a Christmas present, please consider donating instead. You can donate on Qgiv at this link.
Lily recently completed the Twin Cities Theater Camp(!) production of Urinetown. She had a great time! Her character’s name was Emily Ocean. It’s an intensive 5 week program, and Lily missed over a week of it due to our summer vacation, but she rallied and was a big presence on stage for the performances!
As I’ve been fortunate to be reasonably successful in life, I am looking more and more for ways to give back. And not being a jerk about the most fundamental way to do that is, literally, the least anybody can do.
