On behalf of Campoverde Theatre Group I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all our patrons for their continued support which enables the Group to make donations to various local charities each year. A cheque for 500 euros was presented in May to Caritas, Pilar de la Horadada after our highly successful presentation of ‘We’re Stepping Out’. Now, by way of a thank you to all our patrons we are inviting you to be our guests at an informal Recruitment Night on Tuesday 13th September at the Olympia Restaurant, Mil Palmeras. The evening will be hosted by Rene and Edith of ‘Allo, Allo’ fame and entertainment supplied by characters like Captain Betorelli, Lieutenant Gruber, Yvette, etc. Mimi will serve a complimentary glass of wine and canapés before she and others do a daring Can Can. Invitations can be confirmed by ringing ‘Rene’ (Colin) on 96 677 4127. The Theatre Group wishes to increase its membership and give new members the opportunity of lots of fun and friendship on and off stage. 8.00pm on 13th September should be a night to remember. Thank you everyone for your support over the years. Louise A Innes (Membership Secretary)
