ATHENS DRIVE ARTS FOUNDATION
January 29, 2011

The Athens Drive Arts Foundation has been a critical source of support for all the arts programs at Athens Drive High School. The tireless efforts of these volunteers have provided many new instruments to children and families who could not otherwise participate in learning music. They also provide scholarships to the marching band so that the director can include students whose families could not afford to have their children participate. I have volunteered in many capacities for ADAF from sitting on the board of directors for two years to grilling chicken for the annual Mother's Day picnic. In a variety of ways, ADAF has worked with the community and businesses in the vicinity of the school to raise money to support the woefully underfunded performing arts at the high school. What they need are more volunteers and sponsors.
