Tribute to Heroes

We have been honored again to provide music for this high profile event, Thursday, June 14 at the Hotel at Kirkwood. The event is the traditional kick-off event for the Freedom Festival. This will be a chorus event with all hands needed for singing, and there will be an opportunity to buy a seat at the table for the recognition dinner for those wanting to attend.

Summer events being planned

Larry, Bob and others will be planning a number of special “team building” events for the summer. Stay tuned.
