Newsletter August 2021
Hi all. This week we had our first normal committee meeting, it was great to be back together. So many plans are coming together for our future shows and, of course, social events. We are hoping to see many familiar faces and possibly some new ones at rehearsals, bringing CUDOS back to our fantastic audiences. See you all soon and stay safe. Kerryxx
