Local schools receive donation

The Fraternal Order of Eagles recently gave a $500 donation to Cape Horn-Skye Elementary and Canyon Creek Middle School to help support the music programs.

The funds are a portion of the proceeds raised through the FOE annual Mardi Gras event, now in its fifth year raising funds to support students and music in schools throughout Skamania County.

Anna Breithaupt, Cape Horn-Skye music teacher, is planning to buy a new sound system.

“This way the students will be able to hear music more clearly and louder in class,” she said. “We will be able to do more listening and movement activities in class, giving the students a better appreciation for music.”

A portion of the donation will go to the Canyon Creek Middle School music program to fund band equipment.
