We will begin shooting footage for the youtube channel of Who is Kettle Falls. I just got off the phone with Armand, owner of Yonder Mountain Music. He would like to host the channel with kids from our local schools. This will teach them how to use the equipment and give them pride in our area. I will talk to Mr. Teller next about borrowing a camera to start interviewing artists and giving the footage to Armand.

****We will need to put the above events on the reader board if possible.
