Performers include musicians, dancers and singers. This is the eighth annual talent show presented by the CCC. Some of the popular returning performers are tenor Bob Palulis, the Susie Shoes Dancers, and a local barbershop quartet. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master of ceremonies is once again Dr. Dan Garfinkel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People come just to see him,â&#x20AC;? said Farringer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has such a precious sense of humor.â&#x20AC;?
