Today was a great performance, the last final performance from our seniors. You all did an awesome job! It sounded really great. I received more compliments today than I have in the past! Thanks for supporting our great community of Farwell and the Veterans.
Thanks go to our Parents that helped out, the same parents that are always there helping our students in their performances. Jacob and Paula Sullivan – thanks for the water and being an awesome Color Guard Instructor. Thanks to Mrs. Kelly for jumping in and giving a ride when it was needed. Thanks to A.J. McInnis for all the pictures you take and share with us. Thanks to Mrs. Gross for the pictures you take and the water you helped make sure was there.
