Put-in-Bay Recreation Committee hosted another exciting display of community talent on Friday evening at Put-in-Bay School. Eleven acts revealed a bounty of diverse artistic skills and youthful exuberance.
Dance, song, gymnastic, and instrumental performances captivated and thrilled the audience. Creative video productions by Patrick Myers added a healthy dose of local color between acts. Particularly entertaining was a segment entitled, “Shanty Confessional,” in which local characters confessed to minor misdeeds. Mr. Myers also called appropriate attention to the girls basketball team’s championship at the first Great Lakes Islands Tournament held on Beaver Island last autumn. Joe Byrnes and Jack Booker took part in a 50’s quiz presentation. Click images for enlarged view!
