The Mexia Convention Center was almost completely filled Friday night with those attending the Rotary Club of Mexia’s 61st Annual Talent Show, and it’s safe to say that they got their money’s worth and more.
Family members, friends and other well-wishers were there early to get a good seat, some more than an hour early, to ensure they could see their loved one.
Eighteen acts filled the evening with song, dance and instrumental music, nine each from the junior and senior divisions, respectively. The junior division represented Mexia students from kindergarten through fifth grade, while the senior division covered students in sixth through 12th grades.
Bryan Hallmark, a Mexia ISD teacher and also pastor of Mexia First Assembly of God, was emcee for the event, introducing each act and keeping up a light, running commentary with the audience.
