-- Lions Club to hold auditions for November Stars

July is not too early to start planning for a variety show in November. That's

how The Central Mohawk Valley Lions Club has had so much success with one of its biggest fund raisers of the year -- November Stars, this year's being the 16th annual.

The Lions' main theme has been established and now the group will build a show around it. This year, the Lions will be trying something a bit different, as they will be holding auditions for 8 to 10 slots, as they're looking for specific talent. It is the hope of the show's organizers to add a comic, performing animals, ballroom dancing, juggling, or just about anything unique or unusual.

If you're interested in volunteering time and talent to our show, watch the C-S-E for announcements regarding auditions.
