Dancing in the Park set Saturday

July 30, 2010

It was a huge coincidence that worked out perfectly.
Kayla Gilmore of KMG Creations Dance and Fitness, LLC, had planned Saturday’s “Dancing in the Park with the “main objective is to expose different genres of dance, promote the arts and promote fitness for everyone.”

Dickens era begins with SA softball

July 29, 2010

Coaches' wives also have a responsibility to get prepared for what's to come.
