CHEESECAKE FUNDRAISER SUCCESS!  A HUGE THANK YOU to all orchestra families who made this year's cheesecake fundraiser an unprecedented success, especially Kim Mitchell (quadruple crown cheesecake cheiftan), distribution helpers Rita Dettmar, Diane and Emily Farmer, Reggie Kilner, Chris Cerva, all unnamed helpers, student cheesecake hawkers, and their ever supportive parents and families who sacrificed calories for this most worthy cause.  We raised over $2,300, which will be credited to student accounts to defray spring trip and other programming costs.
BARNES & NOBLE BOOKFAIR SUCCESS!!  ANOTHER HUGE THANK YOU to all volunteers, shoppers and patrons who made this year's event another reSOUNDING success, espcially Sheila Hautbois (organizer extraordinaire), student crafters, wrappers, musicians and face painters, and (drum roll) all of our awesome parent volunteers who took time from their precious holiday schedules to support our kids: Chris Dettmar, Connie Lehman, Kathy Rigo, Connie and Chuck Parrot, Ivy Avila, Reggie Kilner, Chi Wai, Jhinuk Hasan-Fulton and all the other un-sung heroes who lent a hand or spent a buck.  We'll have a final report of profits in about two weeks, but in the meantime, feel proud for representing yourselves and our orchestra program to a most appreciative community.
