There are only a handful of people like you on this earth who have patience, are unselfish, caring and reflect all that is good with this world’s compassion! During our monthly board meeting we talked about YOU and the amount of time you have been willing to give back to your children and this organization. That being said, we felt it imperative, not to go another day before thanking all of you who have devoted endless hours of time to help this program thrive!

Some may take for granted the very things that deserve our gratitude, but today we would like to celebrate you and let you know that we, The Band Boosters Board, are forever grateful for all you have done. Without you, we simply would not be able to function.

Have a wonderful day & Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

Lynette, Davina, Don, MJ & Jeff
