I often find myself inwardly laughing at my parents’ puzzled faces when my little brother or I attempt to explain the intricacies of Facebook or a simple Wii game. They, along with, I’m sure, millions of parents around the globe, fail to grasp the use of such tools that we, the digital generation, can’t seem to survive without. How is it that living has transformed so radically, whereas for thousands of years — up until mere decades ago — play and work remained virtually unchanged?
At 6 p.m. Oct. 10, the third annual Wiggin’ Out dinner and fundraiser will be held at Squire Creek. I never knew what Wiggin’ Out was until I met with Vicki Caskey, founder of Wiggin’ Out, last week.
This year’s event will have Tabby Soignier, 28, and Henry Futch, 14, cancer survivors, speaking. There will be a silent auction; musical entertainment, food and the signature drink called “The Pink Wig.” A lot of fun will be had, but the goal is simple — raise money to help those in need.
