Green Valley Elementary School's third-grade classes taught by Katie Robinson and Colleen Cassettari enjoyed a walking tour of downtown recently, and they were joined by Mayor Mike Shimansky. He showed them where Town Council meetings are held and even let them try out the council members' seats.
Having fun with 'Birdie'
Youths from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Old Orchard Drive in Danville sang and danced for three nights last month presenting the musical, "Bye Bye Birdie." In the show, it is 1958, and rock-and-roll heartthrob Conrad Birdie has just been drafted into the Army. The trouble begins when his agent plans a farewell party in which Conrad will give "One Last Kiss" to a lucky fan on the Ed Sullivan show. The show was pure fun from start to finish.
The musical was enthusiastically received by the audiences and the auditorium was filled each night. Admission was free but the church sponsored donations for the Wheelchair Foundation and received $3,300.
