To the editor:

Woodward parents throw an incredible banquet for the graduating eighth-graders every year, and this year was no different. It was classy, sophisticated and elegant. Bainbridge must have one of the highest concentrations of creativity and generosity on the planet.

The Woodward teachers would like to send a special thank you to BPA and the theatrical geniuses Ann Wilkinson, John Ellis, Mark Sell and crew for the musical skit that they wrote, choreographed, and technically produced for us. They donated many hours for rehearsals and lent us handpicked authentic costumes from BPA. Not satisfied with pre-recorded music they even sought out first-class musicians Jan Peterson and John Sydor to accompany us on the piano and clarinet. What is most remarkable is that they did it out of the goodness of their hearts and the love of their friends who have students in the eighth-grade class. None of them did.

We are so grateful to live in this community, where people are still willing to give for the joy of giving.
