Message from the President


As our year of celebrating the ARS is 75!, we all continue to look forward to the future and strengthening the bonds between our members and the national organization. As a board, we are continuing the quest to build on our foundation for the next generation. As a member, I am looking for ways to give back to my recorder community, promoting the benefits of ARS membership and encouraging others to take up the recorder.
