Were You There 30 Years Ago?

snapshotsWe are proud to admit that we are 30 Years Old! Perhaps you might not want to admit it but if you were with us at the beginning, 30 years ago, in 1985, then we would love to see your photos!

Dig up those printed snapshots (right, they probably aren't digital!) and scan them. Email them to Bearta2@aol.com.

If you'd like to mail us the printed photo send it to International Focus - 3700 National Dr. Suite 214 Raleigh NC 27612

Include your name and contact info because we'll be judging to select the best of the entries and the winner will receive FREE Admission to this years International Festival and a feature spot on our website! We'll include them all in our photo album to be displayed at the festival. 

The children who danced on stage 30 years ago are now cheering for their children on stage! what a beautiful moment... we hope you've captured it.
