Somebody Cares About Your Kids

Peter LeeThe other day I was calling on one of my customers, Peter Lee.  Peter is an attorney and one of my yellow pages advertisers.  Peter specializes in trusts and wills and occupies a small office on the second floor of what was once an old house on Main St in Yarmouth.  He runs the practice by himself and over the four years I have called on him which is once a year I have come to enjoy our brief visits.  Peter is an unassuming  and unpretentious person who fits just right in his small office. 

So I usually spend a little time and we talk about our lives and what is going on in his.  Without going into his personal life I have come to know Peter and a kind and gentle man.  In Yiddish he would be know as a real mensch.  Anyway two years ago he talked about a dream and some other people had of providing musical instruments to needy children who showed a desire to learn to play.  These instruments would be provided free of charge.  When I walked into to his office  yesterday Peter was on his way to fulfilling his dream.  Wherever I looked there were instruments everywhere in old case ready to be delivered. 

The short of the story is that The Instrument Exchange was born.  I urge you to visit their web site and if you have any old instrument gathering dust give Peter a call.

  1. you do these portrait shots so well, bravo to Mr Lee, not many of us get to realize our dreams. We live in a small community with a music college, I wonder if they have the same program here certainly worth looking into thanks for the idea and success story…

  2. What a wonderful warm feeling Mr Lee must have to be able to get his dream fulfilled and in turn to be able to start many other dreams in motion. I have a warm feeling in my heart just hearing the story of humanity in action. Man does not live by bread alone!! I love your “investigative” reporting….
