We had quite a drive to Wrightstown, NJ, near Ft. Dix.  What a gorgeous school and stage arena.  The power of US $$$, I guess.  But the group was 5th and 6th graders, and these seem to be a prime group of pre-teens – loose, and willing to participate.  and they did!  Lots of dancing, waves, etc., and the spirit spills into the faculty (or is it the other way around?).  A great gig.  the band played well, too.
