    LYNN WETHERELL

    Blue Sage began in the early 90’s when a small group of instructors got together to rent a building to teach classes.  I was one of those people.  Since then, it has grown to become more than any of us ever imagined, it continues to be near & dear to my heart. You will most likely see me volunteering at most of our fabulous music events.
