As Thanksgiving approaches please keep your mind on things that are good. The above picture is an example of some of those things. But let us not forget those who are without; those who struggle during the holidays because of the loss of a family member; those who don't have enough to eat; those who are struggling with addiction; those who have just given up. CELEBRATE and be there for everyone! Take the time to LOVE one another. Be GRATEFUL for what you have. BLESS those that may not have enough.
Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving band family,
Check google classroom for playing test due dates.
