Editor, Times-Union:

Talk about impressive. Sophomore Analiese Helms performed at the Pleasant View Church Saturday to earn funds for tuition to the MasterWorks Event. It is an annual festival held in Winona Lake each July with students and faculty from all over the world participating. Tuition is substantial. Analiese plays violin, viola, guitar, flute and sings, all exquisitely. While monies were obtained then, additional is needed.

Of course, I asked permission to do this letter to the editor from the performer and her mother. I feel talent like this should be encouraged and given as much all-around support as we can.

Checks can be made out to Analiese Helms, P.O. Box 533, Warsaw, IN 46581.
