Mr. Tree's Kids
Music in Education! This was our dad Ed Tree's lifelong passion. He spent more than 40 years being "Mr. Tree" to generations of band kids in Massachusetts. Although we lost our dad in February 2012, we want his work to carry on. Through the donations of many generous people, a fund was established in his memory at J.R. Briggs Elementary School in Ashburnham, MA.
I am happy to report that our campaign was successful! Thanks to several generous last-minute donors, we have reached - and surpassed!- our fundraising goal. On behalf of myself and my family, please accept my sincere gratitude for all you have done to help my father's cause, and to help music education.
We miss our dad every day. But, it's said, people truly die only when we forget them. If we can remember someone, they will be with us always.
So thank you for knowing, for remembering our dad, Ed Tree. We love you, Dad.
As we approach this day that doesn't exist, those who knew him, please remember my dad, the unlikeliest of men. And if you can, please contribute to his intangible beauty.
