Williams Shows off Local Talent

[slideshow_deploy id=’55663′]

A collection of talent gathered at the Williams Community Center on Saturday, January 11th, 2014.

The night filled with local vocalists, musicians, and a little dancing.

The event sponsored by the Williams Community Center in part of a fund-raising effort for the Community Centers own portable stage.

“We are borrowing a portable stage from the Williams Unified School District,” said Melissa Baikie-Rick, a Williams Community Center volunteer, “we are in the need of our own, and it’s going to cost $6,000 for one that meets our needs.”

In total, 14 acts performed with seven contestants singing, five contestants showed their musical talents on the piano, guitar, and the accordion, and two dance performances.
Although no official judging given, the crowd each had their favorite performances.

Performances were given by Barbara Freeman, the Rennick Girls, Kiana Sanapaw, Melissa and Aaron Baikie-Rick, Jody Bowker, Kaylie and Karsyn Gwinnup and Natalie Wilson, Zenith Wilson, John Lauppe, Vanessa Covarrubias, Benji Balatbat, Shane and Beverly Maxey, Ricardo Carmona, and Candace Edwards.

This is the second Community Talent Showcase hosted by the Williams Community Center, the first was hosted in June of 2013.

“We have a committee of six that help plan the events,” said Williams Community Center Director, Ron Simmons, “we are grateful for the many community members that helped out with the event.”

The event boasted cookies, refreshments and the chance to win one of the several raffle items.

The group raised $37 in donations, and $208 in raffle earnings that night.
