The Tri-State Civitan Club presented its Christmas variety show recently at the Potomac Center on Marshall Street in Hagerstown. The club brings the event to children and adults with developmental disabilities. Students from Marshall Street School, Job Development Center and Star Community were among the crowd. The event is always a favorite show with standing room only. Kevin The Klown always brings amazement from the audience when he balances a ladder in his mouth. Aaron Elbin from Marshall Street School staff was turned into a puppet by magician John Dodge and got many laughs.
