Home Sweet Home

After a long drive through the night, we arrived safely at Saint Patrick High School at 11:45 a.m. Sunday morning. We finished our trip Saturday with fantastic UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival performances by the Percussion Combo and Jazz Band. Both groups received welcome comments from judges. Before we began our trip home, we had a final dinner with and farewell to our tour guide, Donna Hoffman, and bus driver, David Dewey. The trip was exceedingly smooth largely because of their efforts. In appreciation, the students presented them with a monetary gift and school sweatshirts.

In a couple of weeks we will try to have a reunion/party for the trip at which time we will share pics. More details to follow.

Thank you for your support of this trip. Thanks to chaperone John Spizzirri for helping me and Mr. Lea manage the students and the trip activities. We hope that this trip made music, made memories, and made history for the students of Saint Patrick High School.
