Yes we did it -- with your support -- and the support of our talented adults from the community -- Dance instructor Caitlin Rubini, Musical Director Anne Pearce, Glee instructor Kate Hamon, and musicians Joe Bellamy, Steve Chambers, and Steve Zalkind.
The total cost for the services of these outstanding individuals is a staggering $16,000 -- quite a challenge for a group of high school students.
A huge "Thank you!" to our yearly contributors to our Performing Arts fund. Please continue being wonderful.
An encouraging "You can do it!" to those in doubt. Please join our annual appeal.
The youth of Amador County salute you!
