A Virtual Time to Perform in August
By Kaye Osborn

It’s been a long intermission hasn’t it? Who knew the virus would continue to surge and change our landscape so drastically? You will be amazed how many are offered on-line. Many of our local performance venues are streaming virtual shows. Gallo Rep., Prospect Theater, and Modesto Symphony are some of the many available.

It is always fun to “play” with your family members.
Try writing some limericks. (see below)

She certainly has lots to say.
