Although we did have to borrow a couple of items at the last minute from our good friend Dave Lon, who happened to be on hand singing with us. The experience was great and a fun time was had by all. many thanks go out to everyone who sang along: Nathan Brant, Jennifer Chancellor, Thomas Conner, Michelle Davis, Mark Furnas, Ashley & Mindy Greyson, Danielle Gueck, Isaac, Taylor, & Zac Hanson, Rachel Kemp, Dave Lon, Brian Parton, Elvis & Angelene Ripley, Michael Soucek, Steven, Esther, and Maayan Stafford, Jeff "Swany" Swanson, Wanda Watson, and Jonny Wright.

The documentary has reached one of its final stages. Itís reached the final rough-cut stage. Also, with regard to the record, the record is finally mixed. We spent some time outside of Boston in a studio mixing the record and we spent several weeks doing that and then we did the final mastering, which is basically putting the songs in order of which they are going to go on the CD and all those kind of things. All of that has been moved to final process. The documentary is not fully done yet cos itís kind of an ongoing documentary because the record has just now actually been officially completed. So, there is still filming of that stuff going on. Things are still happening. We will keep you posted as things move forward. Also, thanks to all you Hanson net members and everybody for sticking in with us. We look forward to keeping you updated on more info. Thanks for calling and we'll talk to you later."
