Saturday's sixth annual Spring Buddy Ball at the Cochran-Bleckley Rec. Department wasn't as well attended as some.  Approximately 40 special needs children participated.  But Danette Rogers made the point that the important thing was the kids having fun.  Which they appeared to do based upon the cheers heard from them, as well as parents and others watching.   The 16th annual Fall Buddy Ball will be October 6.
