WHS Lip Sync All Stars Hit The Road

Those zany, talented members of the Wellsville Alumni Lip Sync All Stars opened their 11th year of performing on the road this spring. On Saturday evening, April 16, there were 26 WHS alumni that put on a show for the benefit of the Beaver Local High School Band Boosters out in “farm country”. Twenty two of them were in the spot lights “singing” their hearts out. There were a couple alumni back stage and Tim Householder was in the crows nest working the controls. Bill Roberts handled the video taping. There were members of the WHS Class of '54 through 2005 that all pitched in. An addition to this performance were members of the Beaver Local band. Two of the WHS alumni, Donna Caruso Johnston & Dave Johnston, has grandchildren that are members in the BLHS band.

The show was a fund raiser for the Boosters to raise money for equipment, uniform pieces and other necessities needed to keep the Red & White Marching Pride in business. Like everyone across the country the budget cut backs are affecting them too. The extra-curricular activities are usually one of the first items cut when it comes time to penny pinch.

The show attracted a very nice crowd. There were a lot of familiar faces from the ville mixed in with our Beaver Local friends. It was a very entertaining fund raiser with some new faces on stage and new numbers in the musical line-up. If you weren't able to make it you missed a heckuva show.

Congratulations to the All Stars for the another fine performance. Your kindness in helping our “backyard rival” neighbors is commendable. It's proof positive that Wellsville is a small town with a big heart.
