What better way to spend a Saturday than having fun and helping your neighbors at the same time?
Saturday, June 25th, there are going to be hundreds of families at the Phil Campbell campus of Northwest Shoals Community College enjoying a free day of fun and it's all thanks to the vision of one woman, Andrea Owensby. A mom and teacher in Decatur, Owensby had several students who were directly affected by the April tornados. "I could tell from their stories that they were hurting and I just wanted to try and do something for them," says Owensby. "I wanted to provide a day that was entirely free for these children and their families. To give them a few hours where they didn't have to think about what they are going through and they could see that people hadn't forgotten them."
