The Eden Valley-Watkins band and choir departed at midnight Monday, Nov. 19, headed for Florida and Disney World. They arrived early Tuesday morning and enjoyed the beach and a flea market before settling into their motel for the night. Wednesday, Nov. 21, was a big day for them, at Disney Magic Kingdom; that afternoon the band performed at Downtown Disney. The day ended appropriately with fireworks at Magic Kingdom. Thursday was spent at Disney-Hollywood Studios. Friday included Epcot Center and an afternoon performance by the choir. Saturday students loaded up the buses for Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, their last tourist stop before heading back home. They arrived back in Eden Valley Sunday evening, Nov. 25. A great deal of hard work goes into a trip like this, from students, directors Mrs. Pauls and Mrs. Salo, as well as supportive parents and the community. “Thank you” to everyone who helped in any way to make this trip possible and successful!
