Congratulations to ICYM Boliye for organizing such a beautiful event. Drama was good with social theme. Local talents as actors and actress have certainly made justice to their roles with local humor. Once again appreciation to ICYM team and Dr. Eugene. Little bit of sound glitches can be attended to next time as a learning curve.
