4th of July
Thank you Shawn, owner of Taylor Audio for always pulling through for us with stage, stage cover, PA system, sound engineering and working through the night to set it all up.

The kids of the Civil Air Patrol in Orem Squadron made this 4th of July the most patriotic and reminded us of our service men and women in harms way that give us these freedoms we celebrate this day.
What an amazing example of service, self discipline and honor these youth are.
Thank you Cadets of the Civil Air Patrol of Utah County for passing out flyers for our event for hours in the hot sun along the Provo Freedom Festival Parade. These cadets volunteer year round at countless events like no other youth program I have ever seen.
We are so proud of our cadets and hope to bring them along with us at all of our events and to school assemblies.
These proud youth are as dedicated as any military branch.
We were so proud of our Drew Reese singing patriotic songs like "She Stands" that all the audience automatically stood up and put their hand on their heart for.
Hussein, our Iraqi volunteer expressed what the First 4th of July in the US meant to him, and how he admired how our US soldiers respected the US flag in Iraq.
Thank you all that donated enough to send 30 packages to our troops overseas and wrote them letters. Thank you volunteers that will be making Christmas Stockings too.
What can we say about the Marvelous ONE VOICE CHILDREN'S CHOIR UNDER THE DIRECTION OF MASA? AMAZING! AWESOME! MOVING! and THE BEST WAY TO CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY WITH THESE ANGELIC VOICES.
Thank you One Voice Children's Choir for learning and singing the most wonderful version of "Tell Me Why" about the children of the world in such a moving way.
Thank you Mark Shurtleff for offering $1,000 for the soldiers' packages.
The audience stood up and clapped for the Iraqi families at our
