 a  lot  for  the  kids  to  learn  and  the  program  is  progressively  adding  new  elements:

 it  is  continuing  to  evolve.  This  year’s  show  is  very  theatrical.”

In  addition  to  Jenni,  Dawn’s  French  exchange  student,  Violette  Hiegel,  is  in

 the  band.  Dawn  explains  proudly  the

 Violette  arrived  early  for  her  visit  expressly  so  she  could  participate  in  the  band  camp  in  the  color  guard.
