Kiwanis/Community Services Dept. Costume Contest

I've got a lot of video from the costume contest that I'll get to as soon as I can, but for now here's the still photos I shot.  Because my camera battery's recycle time is slow, and the stage was well lit, I took almost all of these without flash, and that sometimes lowers the quality of the picture.  I've put some of these up mainly because I figure there were a lot of parent's on stage, or unable to attend, who have no pictures and would like to see their kid up on stage.  However, just because your kid isn't here doesn't mean I don't have a picture, it may just be more out of focus then I wanted to publish.  So if you don't see your kid, go ahead and contact me and if you can describe what they were wearing, maybe we can figure out if I have a picture you may want.
