Some of Castle Country’s finest performed at the Peace Gardens on Thursday for the Castle Country Variety and Centennial Presentation of Culture Connection.
The night started with food served by the Cowboy Club, followed by singing from locals of all ages.
Helper Mayor Dean Armstrong presented Mayor Joe Piccolo with a historical photo as a gift for the City’s Centennial.
After a variety of songs, Mayor Piccolo gave the crowd the opportunity to honor all those serving in the armed forces by a moment of silence. Piccolo then discussed the many letters local students had written to the troops. He reported that over 500 letters will be sent to troops in Afghanistan.
Next week’s Culture Connection will feature Jennifer Lopez.
