Isla's Got Talent!
|Ornela age 4 1/2 singing and dancing|
Saturday November 26th we saw an amazing variety of people come out to the first annual "Isla's Got Talent" showcase to strut their stuff on stage at the La Luna Night Club. The event was a fundraiser for the middle school breakfast program on Isla. It was the brain child of Kay Cole, and her enthusiastic group of helpers, Sue Lo, Bev Willard, and Lupita Meillon.

The audience had a great time cheering for the brave participants. Mary sang Sweet Surrender. Zoe sang Beautiful. And 4-1/2 year old Orlena sang The Climb and danced.

Ernesto sang two beautiful songs in Spanish, Jose demonstrated Tae Kwon Do, Gaby recited a story-poem in Spanish, and we were treated to a fun demonstration of dancing the salsa that inspired the audience to dance along to the music.

Islander, Jeff Current was a huge success as a first time comedian. His jokes and comments about life on Isla were hilarious, but the funniest part was when a dog (Max) wandered on stage to help out with the jokes. Locally, Jeff is known as The Dog Lady's Husband.

A nice bit of cash was raised during the event to provide breakfast for hungry kids at the middle school.
Great job everyone!
