Hi everyone ,
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all this season. I hope each of you the best, and look forward to a great 2017! Please read below for Christmas Practice Schedule, and other news.
The Gifts you provided for the kids were delivered yesterday, and the school was overwhelmed, with our generous help, and says a big thank you to everyone! We had a few extra items and the ladies, at the school, who I have known for several years, identified a few more kids, who were not on the list, that they would go to. I thank you, they thank you, and feel good about yourselves, and how its speaks volumes of who we are as a team..
