Letter to the Editor: Fremont is awesome
While fundraising for Irvington High School's Spring Musical "Beauty and the Beast," I was reminded again of why Fremont is such an awesome community. Over 200 businesses stepped up in a HUGE way to support our kids with over $7,000 in ads and over $10,000 in donated items.
Many people do not realize that there are no school funds available for these programs. Rights, costumes, props, sets, flyers, programs, and advertising are just a few examples of over $30,000 in expenses incurred while producing our show. If it were not for parents, volunteers, and community support, these programs would cease to exist.
Friends and neighbors... it is now your chance to be an arts hero. We invite you to "be our guest" March 15-March 31. Tickets are now available at: http://www.irvingtonconservatory.org/. Bargain Thursdays: all seats $10. ASL interpreter is available March 23.
I am so proud to be a part of wonderful community and I hope to see you all at the show.
