Holy Week

This past Sunday was a beautiful day of music and a wonderful tribute to all the heart and soul that Debbie put into this music program. Thank you to everyone who made the day special. Let us continue to honor all the years of hard work and love that Debbie put into this program by doing our best to keep it running up to the standards she held us to.
