Good Morning Charles,
Would you be willing to share information regarding the session that I'm having with Larry Ditmar at the MMC Friday morning. Larry has done a tremendous amount of work for MSBOA over the years and this is a unique opportunity for us to recognize a true legendary music educator in our state. I want to be sure that MSBOA members are aware of the session and extend an invitation to attend.
Dear MSBOA Members,
I would like to extend an invitation to you to attend the MMC session with Larry Ditmar this Friday January 17, 9:00am in the Grand View Room. Larry's contribution to MSBOA and to music education have been numerous, and he continues to inspire and motivate music educators at all levels.
The session will be a conversation with Larry, and an opportunity to learn from his experiences, and to honor his contributions. I hope you can make this session a part of your conference.
