Thank you to everyone who volunteers to make the PVSD and YAA concerts and activities succeed. Without volunteers, SOKM would find it difficult if not impossible to conduct registration, help present concerts, and so on.
In September 2013, a number of people helped with PVSD YAA registration, our first time using online registration. A big thank you to: Dick DeVillers for setting up the online registration and helping with “bugs”, Fabiola Ruiz, Cyndee Jenkins, Shelly O’Brien, Laura Sherrick, Angela Capponi, MaryLou Smith, Graciela Paniagua, Janice Northrup, and Yana Reese; SOKM board members Betty Weyek, Karen Gatchel, Richard Gatchel, Serena Villalobos, Keiko Chun, Cathy Crook, Melissa Cohen, Trish Oesterich, Peggy Smith and Iain Anderson.
