Hello Irish Guard Family:
Well, even if it is daylight savings time and it is 6:45am ... I am awake to write THANK YOU to all who "served" Saturday at the NC-PA percussion. We had twenty ensembles choose to spend time / money with us and that is an honor. I truly believe we earned that honor. For us to have made that day work at another DUSD site is a terrific accomplishment! I have learned not give out single recognitions for events. By inocently leaving people out, I hurt people's feelings -- who I did not know did a specific task. Therefore, I just give general thoughts for the day and if you had anything to do with with what I observed - THANK YOU. If I missed anything during my time from 7:15am - 11:15pm, I apologize my two eyes missing it.
Congratulations to guard for another first place finish. Continue to enjoy your season
