Remember The Gong Show of Yesteryear?

To benefit the Cancer Society, our former classmate, Kathy Stephens Shropshire, organized and directed a talent show entitled, Gong With the Wind. It took place Saturday, April 16, 2005 at Talladega's Historic Ritz Theatre on the courthouse square.
To support this cause, MHS alumni, Jerri Lynn Haynes Martin, Susan Harmon Haynes, Lynn Camp Howell, Artie Thomas Spindler & Christine Lathem performed a lip-sync skit to the  song, "Looking for Food in All The Wrong Places," from the hit Broadway play, "Menopause the Musical."  Believe it or not, they didn't get gonged!

Kathy Stephens Shropshire managed to produce an evening packed with more fun than actual talent ... just like the Gong Show is supposed to be. GREAT JOB!
