At our recent Board Meeting, $3000 was allocated to The Junior Jazz Foundation to aid in the instruction of Middle School students.
The Foundation has distributed the Ted Hammond Memorial Fund to help support acoustic bass students in Hilton Head Prep’s String Program. Ted Hammond was a performing bassist with the DJSLC for several years. His widow, Doris, and her family were very appreciative of the distribution.
At the recent Board Meeting, the following slate of Directors was nominated for approval by the membership at our Annual Meeting to be held during the September Jam:
Alan Waitley – President
Tom Dauch – Vice President
Armin Meier – Secretary
Ted Druhot – Treasurer

The Nominating Committee acknowledges with gratitude the service of Forrest McIntryre who has completed his term as member at large.
We will be celebrating our
10th Anniversary with
The Jazz Corner!
