I appreciate the high praise Kale! Our growth has been slow, but I just keep at it and try to continually improve things and share what we are doing. The community here at CBN including the builders group in Sacramento headed up by Will King have been real supportive and a source of new ideas. It’s great to be a part of it all.

These have been a pleasure to watch Doug. It's such a great concept. You've really done a lot for the CBG community with this troop.

Thanks much! It was definitely an OPERATION Andries! We had 15 minutes to set up and no one got hurt in the process. I consider that alone a success! I brought a step stool to get the ladies up on stage. As you can see, we aren’t the youngest group out there with ages up to 94. I have notes for next year. Our next gig is in December for the Dementia Cafe group’s meeting at the library. We are staying local for the time being.
