Talent Show a Huge Success

p0910-karenhoward-900About 60 people turned out to view the Not-Necessarily-Talented-Show on Saturday, September 10. The show didn’t live up to its name, as almost all of the acts displayed plenty of talent.

The first half was various acts by several people. Karen Howard performed two dances that were mesmerizing.

After the play, Terry regaled us with dance music that got everyone up, as we began to clean up the confetti, straw, and other detritus from the play.
