Also, many special thanks to band parents Janine D’Orio, Marianne de Laperouse, Lisa Kyer, Theresa Ryan-Onatzevitch, Cindy Scinto, Lisa Statler, Jennifer Vespucci, and Jennifer Weitman for their tireless organizational, logistical, and advertising expertise!!

SPECIAL THANKS to band parent Cindy Scinto and orchestra parent Melissa Montaruli for their amazing work organizing all of the parent volunteers and working out so many of our logistical and planning details behind the scenes.

In addition, SPECIAL THANKS to Lisa Kyer for securing the local charity Green Drop, to whom we donated all our remaining items.
