We Bowled for Kids’ Sake

Somersby Park Rangers was recognized in Saturday’s Bowl for Kids’ Sake for the team that raised the most money.  Organizers quoted  “This group of people are steadfast supporters of Big Brothers Big Sisters and we appreciate them so much.”  The total amount from our neighborhood reached $1,115 with funds coming in from many donors.  The Somersby Park logo was predominantly visible on the thank you sponsors board located inside Tarheel Lanes.

Here is coverage of the event:

The Sounds of Brevard

Somersby Park residents Elizabeth, Richard, Alice and Rick attended Saturday Night Pops with the Brevard Philharmonic. The concert was performed on the campus of Brevard College at the Porter Center on April 2. Musical selections included arrangements from The Phantom of the Opera, Oklahoma, Lord of the Rings and many others. But the highlight of the evening was when the musicians paid tribute to Ukraine with the playing of their national anthem. The performance was beautiful and quite moving.
