    I attended this very special event last night. It showcased our local talent both the young and the not so very young. Kudos to the Berkeley Educational Society for such event planning, we should have more of the same and more often. I was so very proud of all who participated whether participants, mc’s, hosts or those who played a supporting role.

    Go Green House !!!
