Hello everyone!


I realize that I don't thank people enough.  I am going to try thanking people as they do things for me!
-Thank you Nicole "Jade" Prewett for posting that massive, encyclopedic entr4y telling everyone they need to know about the concert and festival.

-Thanks goes out to Christyne Macdermaid, Pat Creed, and Rochelle Rushlow for coming in today to help me with cleaning up and organizing!!


ok.. more thanks to come!  It takes an entire team of people to keep our program running.  I am going to try and highlight people more often who help make that happen.


DON'T FORGET TO READ THE ENTRY BELOW REGARDING FESTIVAL AND THE PRE FESTIVAL CONCERT!!!!
