Several members of the Welles Village Activity Council for Youth showed off a wide range of talents at a variety show at the Riverfront Community Center on July 21.

Acts included a pianist, a guitarist, dancers and a magician.

Outreach social workers with Glastonbury Family Services Jane Hogan and Lori LaCapra said the campers developed their acts on their own, and this performance was the first for many.

They also said their work at WACY is highly rewarding.

“It's just incredible,” Hogan said.

The WACY camp runs for four weeks in the summer, and is free to residents of Welles Village. It organizes games and activites, as well as field trips to amusement parks, museums and other places. It is run in conjunction with GYFS, the Glastonbury Police Department' Youth Unit, and the Glastonbury Housing Authority, and has existed for 21 years.

The performers had also toured several town buildings that morning, including the Glastonbury Police Department and the Teen Center.
