Before we move forward I just have to take a few minutes to say THANKS to all of you who joined in the effort to raise $$$ for the Community Transitional School this year. To those of you who bought tickets to the Trans Siberian Orchestra shows and participated in our silent auction...We couldn't have done it without you. And thanks to the generosity of TSO, we were able to hand over nearly $14,000 to the school that helps homeless kids in our area. Good job everyone!
