WE ARE STILL finding pieces of guitar in the parking lot next door. It took most of Monday morning to put the store back together. I just found a tiny plastic bottle by the sink. Yup .... we still have our five-year anniversary party on the brain.
Six String Heroes at Jefferson Barracks. Second String Music and Vancil Performing arts are proud to be a part of the Quincy chapter, and the girls from Blue Cross/Blue Shield in Quincy have been huge supporters.
It's the power and healing of music. Six String Heroes has helped more than 500 veterans experience that healing and power.
I will never forget meeting with Kevin and Steve to get the Quincy chapter going. During a store party, and it might have been the first anniversary bash four years ago, a veteran walked in and it became obvious he had some serious issues. We got him started in the program that day and playing the guitar helped this man a lot, and possibly saved his life.
So happy birthday, Six String Heroes! I don't think it's coincidence we are both five and doing well. Cheers to us and to many more years.
