March 16, 2015 (Dehesa) -- The Dehesa School now has a brand new sound system, thanks to a donation from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 9578 in Alpine. The donation enabled the school to purchase a new mixer, two speakers with stands, cables and three wireless microphones.

Nancy Hauer, site administrator at Dehesa School, voiced gratitude for the donation. "For two years our 5th grade class has performed for Veterans on

Veterans Day. The Post loves the performances, but struggles to hear them due to our outdated sound system. They generously offered to purchase a new

sound system for our school," she says. "Ricky, who is in charge of the Post's karaoke also donated a new CD player. Our staff and students are beyond excited to have a new state of the art sound system. The Post's generosity is incredible."

She adds, "Our students enjoy their interaction with Veterans not only at Veteran's Day but also at Christmas and Valentine's Day. We are very fortunate to have developed such an amazing partnership with this organization."
