Stars shine in the Grove's talent show

Saturday night's Stars in the Grove, sponsored by the Forest Grove/Cornelius Chamber of Commerce, was a big hit. Nineteen acts graced the stage at Pacific University's Taylor-Meade Performing Arts Center in an evening that showcased local talent while raising some money for repairs to Theatre in the Grove's building. (Note: we caught some name misspellings in the program, so if we missed any, please leave a comment correcting it.)
