Canton MA's Galvin Middle School Performs at State House
I took a break from my busy day (busy week, busy month!) today to go in to the Massachusetts State House to watch the Eight Grade Chorus from the Galvin Middle School perform at the State House.  
My daughter is in the 8th grade chorus and when I heard they were going to be performing there I thought it was a great opportunity for them.  I wanted to see them yet as the day approached all I could think about was how busy I was.  Luckily, I decided to go anyway!
