In talking about the array of talent that will be presented in the course of the show, Russell said, “We have animals.  We have children.  We have instrumental things.  We have some skits.  We have some music, some vocal music, so, yes, it’s a fairly broad variety of entertainment.”

Preceding the show, the Boy Scouts will serve a pancake dinner in the cafeteria, beginning at 5 p.m., for $5.

General admission to ‘The Duster’ is $15 – $10 for children, children 2 and under FREE.
