THANK YOU to the WHQR Board!!!! 

The Friends of Public Radio Board threw a cookout for WHQR's volunteers, staff and their families on Sunday, September 14 at Hugh McRae Park. Our terrific board members baked cookies, made salads and grilled delicious hot dogs and burgers for some very thankful staffers and volunteers. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful board. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!
