Thanks to the Hitz family, the AFP group enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Pho Woa during our time in Garden City. A special thanks to Melinda Hitz for helping to secure grant funding for the project. We wouldn't be here without you Melinda!

The Presta family was very involved with the project. Both families have my sincerest thanks for making the project not only possible, but successful!

(In this post the group is pictured resting in a place provided by the Presta family just before our final show at the Folly Theater. It was an exhausting but inspiring week!) 

On another note, the Hitz and Presta families made a special trip to NYC at the beginning of November to be here for the Master's Recital of Kristen Doering. What a special time, bringing together so many familiar faces here in New York!
