Thank you also to Ms. Wadler and the 4th grade singers for kicking off our performances so perfectly, and to Mr. Davis for all of his technical expertise. Special thanks also to Ali Kirby for stepping up to help set up for the night, to Susan Watt for answering the call to scoop gelato, to Veronica and Ruby Loomis for helping with clean up and to Travis alums Lilly Jordan and Katie Land for helping backstage with the performances.
