We always welcome this time of year when showcasing the best and most talented, or providing our youngsters with opportunities to demonstrate their skills contributes significantly to our busyness.

In the past week alone we’ve been dazzled by dance performances, serenaded by singers and musicians, viewed the creations of artists and listened to massive applause from appreciative parents and friends when teachers and other mentors are thanked.

That’s not to say anything of the 1913 Days celebration which we would certainly term another success.

While we didn’t get to every event, the reports we received from those involved were all laudatory of volunteers who helped make things happen and the throngs of people who participated.

This week our paper is just too small to provide space for coverage of all the events we’ve attended and the thousands of pictures we’ve taken in efforts to get just the right shots.

That’s why things like Sylvan Celebration of Music, Art & Soul and Sylvan Studio’s dance recital don’t grace our pages. But watch next week as we try to catch up and provide the faces of excitement and joy through our pictures while recording the work of the talented people in our community and their achievements.

While the amount of space we have for news fluctuates on a weekly basis, and we sometimes have to carry stories and pictures to the next week, that doesn’t mean we don’t want to hear your ideas for stories or pursue what we can.

If you’ve got something you think people would be interested in give us a call.
