An area family is turning from sorrow to saving lives as they reach out to others to donate to help a sick child.
Stephanie McCaslin and Cassie Wagley recently lost their daughter, Kenady Charlotte Catherine Wagley, 15-months, to illness. Kenady's mothers were able to see beyond the tragedy of a life lost so early and realize that Kenady was not only a gift to them but also to other ill children in need.
The Donald W. Reynolds Community Center kicks off its Under the Stars summer concert series Saturday with Kalamity Jane.
The concert is the first of five shows planned at the center amphitheater in the coming weeks.
Kalamity Jane is a pop country all-girl group from Oklahoma whose members' experience ranges from singing in front of churches at a very young age to venues across the region.
Concerts start at 8 p.m. and tickets to the shows are $5 at the gate.
June is a busy month around our house. With Cash playing on four baseball teams and one basketball team and Koby playing on three baseball teams and one basketball team, we have only had two days in June without a game of some kind. Both of those dates were due to rainouts. We needed the rain, but my Preps baseball team sure needs to play some games, too.
