Over 200 residents clapped, sang and danced along with Lapow during the event, part of the ongoing Pre-School Performance Series being put on by the Town of Danville’s Recreation Services Department.

Childrens performer Gary Lapow crowd2-10“The Pre-school Performance series is a way for us to introduce the children of the community to the cultural arts at an early age,” explained Recreation Services Manager Michelle Lacy. “This is something we’ve been wanting to do for a while now.”

During Friday’s performance Lapow, who has been featured on the Disney Channel, talked to the children and sang songs about such topics as eating your vegetables, respecting your elders and practicing love and tolerance.

Parent Kerri Sadigh attended the event with her son Cameron,
3 1/2. “It was fun. It was very interactive, for both the adults and the kids,” she said. “I thought it was very engaging and it was a great demonstration of the types of values we want to teach our kids.”

The series runs one Friday per month. Next month, the program will feature Ventriloquist Steve Chaney on March 12, from 10:00a.m. – 11:00a.m. at the Village Theatre, 233 Front St.
