-And many more---just let me know you're willing to help and I'll put you to work!
And thanks to our parents who helped out this past Friday at the Band Council Party! It was a lot of fun and a great team building experience (and yes, there has even been some footage leaked from the party of me doing a few Smurf Dances...)
Have a great week everyone!
