New music fund created to enhance programs
Submitted photo/Karen Braden... Kathleen Bjarnson passed away on Mar 7, 2012 at the age of 105. With her life-long love of music in mind, her children, together with the Community Foundation of Portage and District have teamed up to establish a music fund to help groups enhance their programs.
Music programs are in line for a healthy boost with a $14,400 fund established in partnership with the Community Foundation of Portage and District.
The Kathleen Bjarnson Fund for Music was created by Lorraine Rae and Kenn Bjarnson because of their mother's love for music.
"My mother lived for music and it means a lot to her family to help young people appreciate and develop their own love for music," said Rae.
