To the Editor:
Thank you, thank you to Ms. Carrie England and the students of the Eyer Middle School stage and concert bands for a spectacular spring concert! We knew from the first note played, the students had worked hard to perform something very special for the audience. It was a true pleasure to see the students' respect and love for Ms. England.
