   On Sunday, my wife Laurie and I attended the Senior Star Power Productions Friend Raiser and Teaser for a New Musical Revue entitled We Have A Dream. The event took place at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, and included a Champagne Reception.

Former US Representative Diane Watson and Hollywood Councilman Mitch O’Farrell were also on hand. Farrell made a presentation to Senior Star Power Productions: A Los Angeles Certificate of Appreciation.                                                       MANNY PACHECO   MARGARET O’BRIEN
