Thank you

Thank you so much to all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins & siblings who came out to help with the Stallion Classic yesterday! I can't tell you yet how well we did financially (our poor treasurer is still counting money), but I know we couldn't have worked any harder! Everyone chipped in wherever & whenever they were needed! I've never seen such a hard-working group of volunteers! I'm as proud of our Booster team as I am of our Marching Stallions! If it helps make your sore muscles feel any better, we got a lot of compliments from the visiting bands. My parents work the Directors' Hospitality Tent, and they said many of the directors commented on how much they love coming to the Classic. A couple even said that if they could only take their band to one competition a year, they would come to ours! Amazing job, everyone!

Angela Williford, Band Booster President.
