completed by 10th May in time for Little Mermaid Jr. by Musicians Ltd. A split 5T/5T

performance. For those who were unable to make the show, a
video will be released on the CDS website soon.
Our thanks go out to
for the donations of desks, file cabinets, chairs and
flat-screen monitors. CDS is a registered not-for-profit and
