Message from Spencer Bennett, Band Booster President

We did great at the booster garage sale!  Came in a little short on the money we raised but still had great support from all the volunteers who helped with its success.  A big thank you to all the parents and students who volunteered to make this possible.  And an extra big thank you to Heidi and Brent O’Neill for running the garage sale fundraiser!  It was so organized.
