We would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone who

community that will both educate and entertain at the same time.
Countless hours of volunteer effort go into these tours, and we
would particularly like to thank the Orange County School of the
Arts for again partnering with us in this tour. A team of
student directors from the Thespian Honor Society, including
Alexandra Spurlock, Griffin Runnels, Annie Saunders, and
Director Emeritus, Blythe Schulte, spent hours in helping us
make this year’s tour a success.
We can’t thank Fairhaven Memorial Park enough for their
continued support in helping us use their wonderful grounds to

are recognized on the next page. I apologize in advance to
anyone that I missed. We would also like to thank those
understanding spouses and families who have supported us in the
months of planning and activity prior to this event.
