This fund is a dual purpose fund providing scholarships and grants focusing on music in our community.

Fenmo’s love of music was legendary. He played with Mart Kenney on occasion and was a self taught, gifted musician, playing piano mostly by ear. Wanting everyone to have an opportunity to play and listen to music, he generously donated a baby grand piano to the Clarke Foundation Theatre and it is enjoyed today by entertainers and students alike.
