The Fernwood Sister Schools concert was May 27 at the Northshore Performing Arts Center. The Fernwood choir, the Bad Monkeys Marimba band, the benefit concert choir and Overton Berry all performed. It was an amazing concert and netted a great profit for our sister school, Mokono Boarding School, in Uganda. Past concerts have helped fund a resource center for the school and future funds will build more resource centers so kids can have books and resources to learn. It's a great cause and a wonderful way to hear our kids perform. Harrison was in both the choir and marimba band. Arlie was in the choir and played a flute duet. Both did amazingly well and we celebrated afteward with a trip to Dairy Queen, as tradition dictates! Mimi and Papa were here to enjoy it, too, which was an added bonus.
