Spotlight Rehearsal > Monday 9/19 = NO ~ Saturday 9/24 = YES!!!

The "Award Winning" Spotlight Performers!

 Hi Everyone!

There will be NO Spotlight rehearsal tonight (Monday 9/19).
Saturday (9/24) will be the usual 8:00am – 10:00am (at the Rec Center on Knott Ave.)
I want to run several numbers to see where we’re at so that we know what to clean in preparation for Silverado Days.   I believe that Spelling Bee rehearsal will also be at the Rec Center, so we don’t need to worry about leaving to get somewhere else. 
As a reminder:  The Silverado Days performance is Saturday October 15th at Peak Park.  You are scheduled to go on at 6:30pm.
