We are so fortunate to have a wonderful relationship with a group called Wild Basin Winds. This amazingly talented quintet has been volunteering their time at The Settlement Home for several years. They are always energetic and excited to share their passion for music with our girls.
In addition to their entertainment value, they are also exposing our girls to different sounds and instruments. They help make music and learning fun. We are so appreciative of their giving spirit and willingness to share with us!
