Another Successful JMF

Wow! What a night. The bands were fantastic, quite possibly our best line-up ever. Thanks to all the performers, our sponsors and everyone who attended. We don't have all the numbers in yet, but after expenses, it looks like we'll make almost $2,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Special thanks to our Music Director Clay Grueber and to Erin Wilson and the staff at Wealthy Theatre.
