Compliment: War Bonds, Florence, South Carolina.

Ladies & Gentlemen, we would like to take a moment to thank you all so very much for a fantastic first season run!! Also, a special thanks to everyone that came out this past Saturday for our final season performance, "War Bonds: Songs and Letters of WWII." It was a truly unique evening of performance, reverence, and remembrance heading into this Memorial Day weekend. Audience members were treated to letters from local Florence veterans present in the crowd, read live as part of the performance, and met with outstanding ovation!! Thanks to the Florence Museum and many local veterans for loaning their WWII memorabilia for display in our lobby. We hope everyone has a blessed Memorial Day, and an incredible start to your summer! See you around soon.
