Soquel Music Fondation (SOMU) Potluck

Thursday Sept 25 will be a potluck dinner at Soquel High at 6:00pm.
Please bring a dish and desert if you like. I believe word has been sent home by the band and choir directors. This has annually been mandatory for all students and families involved in the music program. A date for the first meeting of the Soquel Music Foundation will be announced and there will be volunteer signup sheets for all the events this school year.
See you there and Thank you, Stefan Graves
