Local high school in national contest needs your help!

Franklin High School Percussion in Elk Grove has been nominated for a brand new custom-designed floor tarp. This is a wonderful opportunity as the cost of a new tarp is nearly $3000 and a new floor tarp is badly needed.  The winner of the 'Teams for Tarps' contest gets a free tarp and the first two runners up get 50% off of a tarp.

The students are crazy excited about this opportunity.  Please take a minute and watch the student's youtube video they put together.  It is amazing and shows how much the program means to them.  The students' video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxGvmkyb41s
