Please Support The Talent Show

Would you please help the Community Youth Advisory Calendar drum up some support for this Thursday's Jim Butler Days Talent Show? CYAC sponsors the event each year, but this year the number of participants is waaaaaay low and CYAC almost canceled the event.

Tonopah and the surrounding communities have so much talent--people just need to be encouraged. Anyone of any age can participate with any type of talent! Jokes, stupid human tricks, singing, dancing--all talent is welcome for this family event.

For more information, contact Deb Cobb. There is no cost to participate and any talented person can show up prior to the show's start and register. The talent show starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
