When she started playing flute in the sixth grade, Lillian Tally not only learned how to play an instrument, but gained an appreciation for music education that would lead to her recognition as a Living Treasure.
Tally, an elementary music administrative assistant for the Ojai Unified School District, was named a 2016 Ojai Living Treasure along with Dwayne and Marilyn Bower, Stan Greene, Jerry Kaplan, Helen Peterson and Joyce West. The announcement was made April 19 at a reception at the Ojai Valley Museum.
