TOAST OF OHIO WINE FESTIVAL
LITTLE KIDS ROCK
The Huron St. Peter Little Kids Rock program was founded 3 years ago by Bo & Julie Loeffler in collaboration with John Cipiti, co-chair of the Music Department at Terra State Community College. Huron St. Peter was the first Catholic school in the nation to establish & support a Little Kids Rock program, teaching kids in grades 1-8 how to make, perform and sing rock n roll music.
In Scott Gast’s memory & legacy, the Scott Gast Memorial Fund donated guitars and other instruments to the program. If you’d like to donate to keep this amazing program alive, send donations to Bo Loeffler at Huron St. Peter School, or to Little Kids Rock, Attn: Julie Loeffler, 409 Anchorage Circle, Huron, OH 44839.
Little Kids Rock will be performing at Terra State Community College on Sunday, April 22 at 2:30pm.
Listen to their interview with Mix 102.7’s Randy Hugg, and their new Cedar Point themed song!

TEEN BEAUTY QUEEN BRITAIN BENNETT
We’ve spoken with Britain before about her Sweet Dreams charity, in which Britain collects blankets, pajamas, pillows and sheets for Care & Share. She is promoting her anti-bullying campaign, called BRAVE. Part of that is having parents get more involved with their kids’ social media use, since bullying is so prevalent on those sites. She is promoting her SMART Parents plan, with SMART being an acronym for Social Media Awareness Respect Timing.
She also uses the TBH acronym when it comes to social media and online bullying, standing for Talk to somebody; Block it out of your heart; Help others.
Her campaign even caught the eye of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who mentioned Britain by name in a Teen Vogue essay, called Why Our Generation Is What’s Right With America. CLICK HERE TO READ IT.
Britain is available to speak at schools, church, youth groups, or any organization. To arrange an appearance, call 419/202-0590, or contact her at email@example.com.
