Get Creative for the Troops

“White Hawk Music Café and the talented citizens of Goochland County are teaming up for a great cause!  We’re looking for your best song, story, poem, or jokes – anything to bring some joy to our soldiers overseas and those who have returned home to Virginia.”

That was the beginning of an email I received from Dr. Gretz before Thanksgiving.  Anyone that knows me knows that I jumped into high gear to find a way for my students to participate.  We decided on readings of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and a few parodies.  Today was recording day!
