Would you believe it if we told you that it`s National Buy a Musical Instrument Day? Honestly, we rolled our eyes too -- but The Today Show said it first, so we guess it`s legit! What better way to celebrate your new investment than to play on our small stage at the fair?

We`ve got a special request for you -- did you know we`re in need of only TWO MORE superintendents? That`s right, our fruits and veggies could use some love.
