Band o grams on Saturday
We are so grateful to the community for their contributions to our uniform fund-raiser.  the unifroms look great.  We will be spending November working on closing up the majority of “thank you’s” to the donors.  One of the thank-you’s is a “Band-o-Gram” to some of the sponsors.  We have 14 scheduled for Saturday  We have adults signed up to transport our students around Port Huron to handle the thank-you-grams.  This is a FULL UNIFORM performance.  Dress appropriately.
