If we were unsure before, after tonight's 'talent show' we are convinced!
The evening was two-fold - a display of craft and artworks in the downstairs room, and the performing arts section upstairs.
Joan brainstormed and organized this entire downstairs section, with paintings and drawings from herself, Anton, Royce, Liz, Victoria, Petru, Caleb and Dinnay adorning the walls and some benches, and around the rest of the room contributions of cross-stitch, scrapbooking, photography, beadwork, sewing and heaps of clever goodies from Cynthia, Justus, Shirley, Chrissy, Olive and me (hope I'm not forgetting anyone).
The 'live' section was kicked off with a swing group (namely, Kelsi, Justus, Liz and me) performing the Shim-Sham, followed by Liz's hilarious ping-pong song, and then a good 50 minutes more of several songs and items and readings from a fabulous group of very nervous people - it was really a show not to be missed and hopefully will be an annual event - apparently MRBC used to do this sort of thing more regularly, but this was our first one in the 2 1/2 years we've been here. Well done, all!!
