Finalizing the requirement of a $2,000 district grant that was awarded to United Sound and announced at our October 5 meeting, July Duty hosted a book assembly project at her home Friday, October 27.  Members and guests of Mesa West Rotary Club participated in the work project, about which Julie exclaimed, "They got them all done!  It was completely amazing!" 
The mission of United Sound is providing musical performance experiences through peer mentorship for students with special needs.  
The district grant funds, which were matched by the Mesa West Rotary Foundation for a total of $4,000 covered printing of the curriculum/music books the participating students use.  The work project will utilized the effort of Rotarians, their guests and participating family members to assemble and customize the curriculum books adding colored stickers to aid the special needs students in transferring what they see in the book to more easily play correct notes on their musical instrument(s).
