Local Talent Sought

By Staff | Dec 11, 2007

Palo Alto County and Emmetsburg will be celebrating 150 years next summer. The celebration is set for the Fourth of July weekend.

“As part of the celebration, we are going to have a Hometown Talent Show in Soper Park,” said Jackie VanOosbree of Emmetsburg. “We plan to have an open mike – open stage for all volunteers.”

The stage will be open to singers, dancers, small groups and large groups. Anyone who plays guitar, piano or keyboard should plan to perform.

“We are celebrating our community, so it’s important that we all get involved,” said VanOosbree. “We want all types of entertainers from Palo Alto County to join us in the park.”

A stage and sound system will be provided at the park. Performances will be scheduled throughout the afternoon.

“Even though the celebration isn’t until July, we would like to get started organizing the entertainment,” said VanOosbree. “You can contact me at my home phone 852-3755.”
