Everyone is connected to everyone else and 93.7 WSTW and Out and About are a part of those connections.

May 6, 2013

The show is less than a week away. We’ve had our read-through and rehearsal. We’ve laughed over lunch and open our hearts with margaritas in our hands. We’ve printed posters and alerted the media.  And now, it’s up to you to buy your tickets and stuff your bags with tissue.  And as we come to the big day, we have two more cast members to share with you. Two more warrior women who brave this world with heart. Two women, Sandy Leonard and Anne Saks, whose connections will only truly be revealed when you sit in your seats at the Queen this Sunday, May 12th Sandy Leonard moved to Glen Mills, PA almost five years ago with her husband, twin sons and two Labrador retrievers.  As if two teenagers and two dogs weren’t enough, she also manages a strategic research alliance for AstraZeneca in Wilmington, practices yoga and regularly hunts out tasty local fare on the […]
