Robin's Best Shirt Award, August 6, 2010

Considering that is was a warm August evening, and The Akumalian had not been able to send out its proper notification, this was one very well attended and supported event.  And the array of "Best Shirt" entries show that this continues to be a premier event, and the winner - well that is something else again.  Shades of the Coconut Cabaret and "La Cage Aux Folles" - The Best of Times are now............

Because these are "The Best of Times", and it is appropriate for this months event, we are trying something new this month.  Click on the video and let the music play while you stroll through the Photo Gallery.  When you are finished, come back and sing along with The Staff.
