Music, in all of its variety and the talent that comes with it, is a significant part of the lives of many. This is especially true for the students who make the dedicated decisions to commit themselves to the world of music and band. To help students reach that commitment, the Tri-M Music Honor Society at Lakeland Regional High School held an instrument drive to help all students in our area have the opportunity to participate in music programs. 

Senior Gabriella Kaniuk, vice president of the Society, told The Ledger, “Our organization is based on doing three services. We serve community, school and music.”

For the society’s community service project, the group organized an instrument drive for the greater community of Passaic County. According to Kaniuk, “The goal was to collect used instruments for donation to an underprivileged music program. We set up donation sites at the Ringwood and Wanaque Public Libraries and at Lakeland.”

In the words of Kaniuk, “We are so proud to give the gift of music to children who would otherwise not have been able to experience it.”
