Vare Washington is trying to bring musical theater back to their school! Performance will be this May, and open to the public. Please consider a donation to help purchase costumes, lighting, props, and the rights to the musical itself. Any amount will help achieve this goal!

    Bring Back Our Musical! by Zachary Duberstein
    Prior to the merger of Abigail Vare and George Washington Schools, George Washington was known for putting on amazing musical performances; lighting, elaborate costumes, choreographed dance and song routines, the works! Sadly, due to lack of adequate funding, the school has gone without a musical for several years.

    Italian Market mom paints what she knows - grief | Mike Newall
    Paint what you know. That's what Connie Tartaglia's art teacher had preached all those years ago, when little Joey was still just walking, and she was taking a nighttime painting course, while Joe Sr. was busy with the family fruit stands. So, she did.
