Thanks you!!!!!

Thank you to Mike Kennedy, Joan Tapken and Teri Reed for taking over the responsibility of running concessions.  This is a very challenging volunteer effort, and we’re very grateful that they’ve stepped up to handle this extremely important fundraising activity.  Their first event was Friday night’s football game, and it was a huge success!  Thank you, also, to all of our parents who volunteered to work concessions last night as well.  It was a busy night, and Mike, Joan and Teri couldn’t have done it without you.


Thank you also to Teri Reed for doing an impeccable job with the home show program for us again this year.  Teri actually took time off from her very demanding job to put an enormous amount of time, energy and artistic talent into the finished product.
