Thank you to Tamming Law, our Corporate Partner 2019-2021!
“Pushing through some of my Kiwanis “jitters" as a child prepared me to tackle many other things that I have been nervous to approach! The experience taught me much about practice, confidence, teamwork, and of course, the place of music in my life. I carry the memories with me.” – Katie Tamming
