Kenneth Potter160 boys. Poor baby I feel so sorry for you. I'd take maybe 140 of them off your hands. How many do you really need?

David DillardKen....it is so great to see young men wanting to be involved in a musical group. I have worked with the Atlanta Boy Choir and find it so rewarding to work and see them grow musically, mentally and spirituality. I know you must be very proud of them!

David DonathanHi Ken. I have about 70 robes like these you can have. A few clarifications: they are adult sizes, but some are for smaller adults, and they have the cathedral length surplice, not the shorter ones you have. We bought new ones 2 years ago. They are in pretty good shape, royal blue, 100% poly, cotton/poly surplice, in 2 boxes ready to ship. They could easily be altered. Message me.
