Please bear with me as it’s going to take at least a day to put the entire trip together for us. I will get the information out to you all as soon as I have everything finalized. Thank you for your patients.
Uniform Washing This Week – We would like to have a uniform washing this week so that we can travel to the State Marching Contest looking (and smelling) our best. Uniforms can be picked up to be washed after rehearsal on Monday and Tuesday.
