Let's face it, the older we get the harder it can get to be as active as we were in the younger years. This week's Extraordinary Person of the Week doesn't live by those standards. Matter of fact, at the age of 80, Dick Secondo is running circles around some folks half his age. He wants others here in the Cape Fear to realize that age doesn't have to be a number!
Big name bands work with smaller bands all the time. Sometimes the smaller ones are opening acts and sometimes the opening acts get to join the big cats on stage. Sonny Boykin has done it all. He comes from an era where the musicians were tuning and the girls were swooning. Sonny is the '79 INVADER.
Burrito Babies for children in the hospital, scarves for Veterans at the VA, Activity Aprons for folks with dementia....the list of things this group makes goes on and on and on. This week we focus on just one of their projects: Mats for the Homeless. Our Extraordinary Person/People of the Week is the 'Tight-Knit Group of Gals'.
Theatre can be a huge building block for kids. Let's face it...a lot of adults get nervous in the spotlight. So, get kids comfortable with themselves, in the spotlight, and you give them the ability to shine. This week's extraordinary person of the week is a local actor, writer, director, musician, teacher, and on and on. He is sometimes stage ‘left’, but his mission is always ‘right’.
