The council is doing a “guitar drive” to collect about a dozen new (or barely used) instruments for the guitar band at Clearwater Secondary School.

“I donated the first to celebrate my companies 25th/Wells Gray 75th,” Blackwell says, “and am putting the challenge out that if businesses or individuals can donate six more new guitars(or the money to buy them), I will donate another one.”

Yamaha acoustics are a good standard.
