Changing of The Guard

By Amy Jeanroy


For 27 years, listening to WQDY was synonymous with hearing the voice of Tom Mclaughlin, "The Firedog." With his retirement looming at the end of this week, looking back on his years at the station, it's been a career that was clearly more than a job. 

A Fun Two-Day Workshop In Cooper

Another fun workshop in Cooper at the Cooper Community Center (CCC) held on Saturday, November 19 and Sunday, November 20 sewing quilted tote bags.  Each participant had her sewing machine and tables with plenty of space for laying out and piecing fabrics. It was so fun that some chose to extend the workshop to two days. 

Beckett Center News

It has been a busy couple of weeks here at the Beckett Center. During the week of the 14th we had computer time; some played an exciting game of left, right, center; we had Wii bowling tournaments; some enjoy simply playing cards and chit-chatting.
