Friday Focus Morning Show – January 29

A multitude of guests on this week’s edition of the Friday Focus Morning Show! We started off in the first hour with the Horse Crazy Cowgirl Band, all the way from Washington state, who will be playing the Arizona Folklore Preserve this weekend. We also heard from Sierra Vista Herald Opinions Editor Eric Petermann, followed by Tim and Cheryl Cervantes, owners of CerendipiTees, who told us about tomorrow’s Small Business Expo. We’ve also got info on various events taking place across the region.

In the second hour we were joined by Melissa Avant and Tom Reardon from First Things First. We had a great, in-depth discussion about this important non-profit and how it’s impacting young families in Cochise County.

Then in the third hour we interviewed Rachel Gray and Clyne Namuo (pictured) of Habitat for Humanity in Sierra Vista. They revealed how this charity will be helping local families in need by building five more homes. Did you know Habitat also carries out home repairs?
