Stanstead’s Got Tal­ent!

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary’s now an­nual tal­ent show/fundraiser, Stanstead’s Got Tal­ent, at­tracted an­other full house at the end of April. Al­most twenty acts, rang­ing in age from chil­dren to adult, were judged by a panel and the win­ners

were an­nounced at the end of the show.

“All eigh­teen acts were present and we had a 19th act: Miss Trudy sang and danced at the end,” com­mented grade 5/6 teacher Emily Grey, who or­ga­nizes the event as a fund- raiser to help pay for the end of the year class trip.

Young Si­enna Waller was the win­ner of the “El­e­men­tary age” cat­e­gory, win­ning a one day pass to the Ayer’s Cliff Fair and a gift bas­ket. Natasha Sisco won the same prize in her cat­e­gory of high-school aged per­form­ers. The adult cat­e­gory was won by Princess El­iz­a­beth El­e­men­tary School teacher Melissa Ding­man who sang and played gui­tar. Ms. Ding­man won a paid gig at Café Bar Sans Fron­tieres, in Stanstead.

The fundraiser was a suc­cess thanks not only to the many per­form­ers brave enough to take the stage, but also to the good com­mu­nity sup­port from busi­nesses such as Alex’s Garage, R.H. Rediker, the Stanstead En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre and the lo­cal Phar­macy. “We were also given ice cream for all the stu­dents from Video Fron­tiere and the Ayer’s Cliff Fair Board gave us four one day passes for the day when they hold their tal­ent con­test,” said Ms. Grey. “I’d like to say a big thank-you to the com­mu­nity for com­ing out to the show and for do­nat­ing prizes,” she added.

Miss Trudy showed her comic side dur­ing her song and dance.
