Playcrafters Summer Outing was to a L. I. Ducks Game on August 2 at Citibank Park. We thank Dick Westhoff for having such a good idea and chairing the event. We had a terrific time!
We need some help . No experience necessary-ushers, stage crew-very light work, props, even lighter work, candy sellers, costume helpers. Please give a hand, couple of hours. It really takes a village to put on a show. Call 286-1136 anytime. We'll train.
