Project Power LIVE variety show held May 29 at Coon Rapids Middle School

Project Power participants performed in a creative variety show May 29 at the Coon Rapids Middle School auditorium, showcasing their skills and talents ranging from song, dance, speech and performing with musical instruments. Participants practiced and planned the show for months leading up to the show, while building confidence and developing friendships with staff and other participants.

Project Power LIVE was thankful for the support of the Coon Rapids Super Seniors, which provided a grant this spring to support the program.
