Do you have a special talent? 

We're looking for folks who want to show off their talents -- what can you do? Singers, dancers, poets, authors, plate spinners, musicians, and  people with any talent they'd like to share are welcome (well, maybe not fire breathing or snake charming). It's a talent show at the May potluck -- 5 minute slots will be given to those who wish to share their gifts with their SAGE friends. If you are up for it, please contact Leslie at 315-478-1923 or email here
