Thank you to all those of you who brought your children to sing at the Somerset Patriots game. We were given beautiful weather and in turn the children gave a fantastic performance of the Star-Spangled Banner. In my honest opinion, your children continue to push the expectation of how an elementary school choir sounds! I could not be more proud of their performance. I hope everyone had an enjoyable experience. Thank you! François Suhr
