Volley for the Cure set for Tuesday.

The Ada/Spencerville volleyball game on Tuesday, Oct. 3, will support Volley for the Cure. And, Amelia will be there, too.

Amelia is an Ada first grader who has fought stage four cancer since January 2015...and is winning the battle. One of her goals is raising donations for Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.

Also, three representatives from each school will have three minutes to race through the stands to get donations. The principal whose school collect less will have to dress up in the winning school's mascot costume for the entire varsity game.

Also, new children and adult coloring books may be donated to be given to patients at Nationwide.

The Steelions, a steel drum band of local 11-15 year old youth, entertain like true Bahamians.

The band has been organized now for several years and is taught by Dr. Sarah Waters, ONU music prof. Here's photos of their Saturday H&H performance.

And, what's Caribbean music without a little limbo.
