If you’ve been wondering if you should give now to the downtown Confluence Art Center project in Eau Claire – do it in honor of a long time music teacher in Eau Claire you or your kids may have had Dale Young. He likely influenced many in the community with his love of music and teaching skills. He passed with the Confluence Center on his mind–he so wanted to vote on that referendum the city held in 2014–his critical illness prevented that. His wife Loretta believes he would be very happy to know you may have helped it become reality by giving a donation in his name.
Dale taught at several Eau Claire elementary schools, Central Junior High School, South Middle School, a short time at Northstar Middle School, and finishing his career at South Middle School and Memorial High School in 2001. And he had a part in the 1975 formation of the Chippewa Valley Symphony which one day will hopefully play in the new Center.
