Project 629

There is no doubt that taking 70 young people and adults to the Broadway Play “Wicked” was the top event for the month of April. 40 kids and adults from Pickens County, Marion County, and Fayette County that participated in the drama High School Musical in January were treated to a trip to Birmingham.
