Miss Ginger’s Dancers will take the stage for the 34th year in a row at the Cypress Community Festival.

This group is comprised of dance teacher Ginger Anderson’s students from her Cypress Community Center classes. Though Anderson’s classes teach styles of dance typical of a regular studio, like jazz, ballet, and hip hop, what sets her classes apart from studio classes is the broad age range of her students.

Smile for a Lifetime scholarship recipient Bree Smentkowski saw her new smile for the first time after two years of wearing braces at Boulton Orthodontics on Tuesday.

The Smile for a Lifetime Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides free orthodontic treatment to individuals aged 11-18 who demonstrate financial need.

“I was nervous that it would be a lot of work to take care of the braces and it would be difficult and unusual, but everything’s been better than I actually thought it would be,” said Bree Smentkowski, 15.
