Schedule this week and FINAL reminders!

Dear HC Band Family,

What a great evening Friday at the Pops and last night at the Banquet!  It is a privilege to work with such a great family and so many dedicated parents and students!  Special thanks to all of the parents who worked for many hours to set up table reservations, arrange the logistics of the Pops concert, organize the silent auction, decorate for the banquet last night, etc.  The list goes on and on…  Thanks to all for a fantastic year!
