Thank you to all who braved the frigid temperatures and bad weather to come out and support River City Youth Ballet Ensemble’s presentation of Pinocchio yesterday.

And a special thank you to all the volunteer parents who helped out in way during the performance.  From the back stage area to the front lobby, without you we can not pull off a performance.  Thank you again!
