Talent show promises summer fun

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

It doesn't take long for the summertime blues to kick in in small towns like Chiefland, Bronson and Williston.

Simply put, there's not a whole lot for kids to do from the time school lets out up until August.

Maggie Allen and LaWanda Jones want to do something about that. The two put their heads together and came up with a fun idea for kids ages 13-18.

It's a talent show, giving kids a chance to put together their acts in an organized competition.

The show will take place on Friday, July 11, at the Tommy Usher Center in Chiefland. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and the show will begin at 7 p.m.

There are several categories planned - best rap group, best dance group, best group performance, best comedy act, best vocalist, etc.

There can be additional categories if there are enough entries.

The audience will decide first, second and third place in each category. Those will receive trophies.

"I know it's short notice, but we want to give the kids something to do over vacation," Allen said.

The emcee - Rod - will also be a deejay for a dance after the talent show.
