Letter to the editor: Time for talent to shine

On Saturday, the curtain will rise on the fifth annual Happy Valley’s Got Talent, a fundraising event for Tides, a grief support program for children, teens and the people who love them.

If you’ve attended the show in the past, you know of the astonishing talent that takes the stage and you’ve enjoyed an afternoon or evening while supporting a remarkable cause. This year’s event promises to be every bit as entertaining and inspiring.

But the event is so much more. It represents all that is right about Centre County and the spirit of volunteerism and philanthropy that is the lifeblood of so many organizations like Tides that mend and heal the fabric of our community.

Though the event won’t make the national news, it will make you feel proud to call this region home. You’ll laugh, and maybe you’ll cry a little, but Happy Valley’s Got Talent is a one-of-a-kind experience from start to finish.

We’ve found some fantastic talent, now we need to fill The State Theatre for the 2 and 7 p.m. shows. Join your neighbors and friends and experience the best of what life in Happy Valley is all about.
