Individuals, service clubs help PEAHOF

Local service clubs and individuals are helping the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame bring music to Pittsburg junior high students through the PEAHOF Arts Mentoring Program.

John Guerrero, a founding PEAHOF Board member and leader of Natural Blend, one of Pittsburg’s oldest bands, and Allan Grissette, drummer for the Devil Mountain Jazz Band, have both donated instruments for the program.

 Members of the California Watercolor Association have volunteered to work with students, providing art mentoring in the watercolor medium.

Not all donations are monetary ones.
