Today is the last day of school for students. This summer the MMA will clean all those uniforms, assist in finalizing plans for HXNE, send in our non-profit tax forms, help in the search for a new music director, and kickoff Mohawk's 50th anniversary school year with a potluck reunion of past MMA members. (stay tuned for updates) We hope your summer will be full of wonderful music!
