Letters to the Editor

This Week's Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:

This past 2016-2017 school year, the Pride of Pickens Band has been involved in many opportunities from concerts to football games to competitions. We wanted to take this time and thank everyone for their support whether it be monetary donations, donations of your time, recognition for our hard work or just coming to watch us at any event. Without you and your support, we would not be a successful program. We would love to have you at any event to hopefully enjoy all of our hard work. Thank you again so much for all you do and please join us this next year to make this another wonderful season.
