Hello Winter! I’m kind of thinking you need to have an eviction notice! A lot of people are aiming to hunt the groundhog down too. Watch your back Unadilla Bill!

 

Palmyra Junior/Senior Prom appears to have been a great night for the dance portion, even though the weather wasn’t the greatest. Glad everyone was able to return home safely. The Post Prom has been postponed to a future date. This could be a first – Prom plus "blizzard" conditions. Okay, so maybe it wasn’t blizzard conditions but it was not nice!

Good luck to the Palmyra High School music department with District Music in Auburn on April 20.  The Bennet Elementary Spring Concert will be April 23.

 

A benefit for Wayne Schroder will be held at the Woodland Hills Golf Course on April 22. The proceeds will be placed toward Wayne’s medical bills from his heart transplant.

 

Palmyra Game Night has been rescheduled for April 28 at the Palmyra Senior Activities Center.

Palmyra Jr/Sr High School Spring Concert

By Jackie Thomson-Bremer

The Palmyra Jr/Sr High School Spring Concert featured the Show Choir, Jr High Choir, Sr High Choir, Jr High Band, and Sr High Band. The four Fine Arts senior students were acknowledged – Kristopher Phillips (band and choir), Grace Briley (band and choir), Anna Whyman (band) and Rebeckah Taylor (choir).

 

The Show Choir performed four musical numbers. Grace Leuschen and Kristopher Phillips had solos in ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’.  Sarah Vorderstrasse and Sam Fitzpatrick has solos in ‘Rise’. The group includes eighteen students, with only one senior, so next year will be a very experienced group.

 

The Jr High Choir performed three numbers. Kaileigh Sabatka, Jenna Rempel, and Erynn Somers accompanied the ‘Ahrirang’ number.  McKenna Martin, McKenna Callahan, and Saryah Freeman sang solos during the ‘How Can I Keep From Singing’ number.

The Sr High Choir performed three numbers. Grace Briley, Zach Hartwick, and Gwen Leuschen accompanied the song ‘Singabahambayo’.

 

The Jr High Band performed two musical numbers and the Sr High Band performed three musical numbers.

 

The Fine Arts Boosters served Root Beer Floats and Brownie Sundaes as a fundraiser for all they support with the students. The brownies were donated by the Palmyra Family and Community Education Club as their community support.
