Clean-up Thank You

Major thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to help with our clean-up!

There are quite a few acting opportunities around our region- the best site that I have found is http://www.myspace.com/galliactors- The Gallia Actors are networking fools! So, if you need actors, classes or audition notices please, check this myspace out!

With that- here is a local call.
