Rachel dedicates endless hours to ensure that music and arts are brought to all in our rural community by helping non-profit groups gain access to our performing arts center through financial and other support. For years and years she has organized a kids concert every year during our community’s annual Winter Music Festival (another committee on which she volunteers) that gives over 100o rural school kids access to a professional live music concert with up-close and personal access to musicians and their instruments.
