Community mourns the loss of Tony Kennedy
Friday, May 24 2019

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Tony Kennedy who was a member of the Carolina Coast Band. We had the opportunity
to meet and spend time with Tony during Spring SOS and he was such a kind person and gifted musician. We extend our thoughts
and prayers to Tony's  family, band members and friends.
