Talent show was a success

Dear Editor:

Recently Summerland Secondary School hosted their ninth annual Free the Children Talent Show for two nights.

I would like to give a huge round of applause to Cassie Erb and Melissa Stathers for their dedication and hard work as organizers and hosts of another successful event for the second year in a row.  Over the two nights the audience was entertained with an abundance of great performances ranging from the ages of five to 77.

It was a great way to showcase our local talent and to bring awareness to the Free Children Foundation.

Congratulations to the singers, dancers, musicians, performers, backstage crew, tech booth, front support, organizers/hosts and to the many many sponsors, along with huge support from the audience, our community raised over $3,661.

It is amazing to see how a little town like ours can make such a huge difference in the world, and for that, I am very proud and blessed to call Summerland home.

Valerie Erb
