Blues gives greens to Ilwaco High School band

Clint Carter, organizer of the Peninsula Rhythm and Blues Festival, presented a check for $400 to Rachel Lake, music teacher at Ilwaco High School. The money came from the third annual event in September, which featured seven bands over two days. The festival also raised enough to share $2,000 around the Peninsula’s three food banks. “I started playing instruments in third grade,” said Carter, who was thanked by Lake and her students for his generosity. “These children are our future.”
