This weekend would not have been the absolute success it was without our Band Parents organization. We cannot thank our band Parents enough. Everyone who came out to help with the home show were amazing. Thank you all for your time and dedication to making that evening very special. I want to give special shout outs to our Band Parents Executive Board for all of their time, planning and execution which made the show run so smoothly.
I want to thank one of our band parents, Jeff Hatfield, for his amazing art work designs for our t-shirts & program cover. Truly amazing!
Finally thank you to everyone who came out to both shows and cheered us on. It is obvious who's family and friends "bring it" to each show. Your cheers are our fuel and we love it.
