Testimonial Letter from Nate Sparks . . .

Dear CJC:

Thank you for honoring me at the Hall of Fame reception.  I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me, with all the jam sessions and gigging opportunities.  I have improved not only as a musician, but as a person by going to the monthly jam sessions since I was in 8th grade.  Please continue to make the monthly jam sessions happen, as they are instrumental to the development of young players,

Thank you,                                                                                                                                                                              Nate
