In November I gave twelve performances as Mr. Ernest Stanley at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse production of "The Man Who Came To Dinner." Valerie conducts the Trinity Methodist choir and performs in several chorus'. Come visit us. School Due to my parents choosing to move about the Eastern USA, I was in a different school every year until I reached grade 10. I was ready to participate activities in school(choir, drama, track & field), church (Unitarian LRY) & community (World Federalists, Congress of Racial Equality, picketing the White House & discriminating restaurants). At the same time I began to develop friendships that continue today. I have attended 5 high school reunions & look forward to the 45th in 5 years.
