Community should show support for Jaycees talent show

Editorial

Eudora's Jaycees have made a solid commitment to helping the youth of this community succeed. Now it's time for the community to help the Jaycees in achieving this unsung endeavor.

The Jaycees are looking for performers any kind of performers for the annual talent show, which will take place April 8 at the high school auditorium. As of last weekend, Jaycees president Pamela Bass was worried there would not be enough talent to warrant a show.

We know that's not true. Eudora is an up-and-coming city, which means it has plenty of talented folks. There are many who can sing. Others who can dance. Heck, if we looked hard enough, I bet we could find someone who claims magical tricks to be his or her hobby.

There is probably a juggler, a comedian and even a ventriliquist somewhere within the confines of our city limits.

The time is now to come forward.

It's not important that community members be professional performers only that they contribute in any way possible to this worthwhile event. The Jaycees raise thousands of dollars each year for the children of this community. They've been a visible part of the youth baseball league and contribute funds to other charities. One of their biggest fund-raisers is this talent show.

And, before accusing this publication of not doing its share to help ensure the success of the talent show, it should be noted that Dan Simon, publisher of The Eudora News, will be serving as the master of ceremonies for this event.

His talent is limited, but he tries hard, which is all we can ask of anyone in the community. Anyone intrested should call Bass at 542-3118.
