In early July, Bednar’s father passed away. The next day, Bednar learned that her plans to adopt a child fell through. Bednar and her family were devastated, she said. Still, with encouragement from friends, she attended Summer Tuesdays the following week.

“It was so amazing,” Bednar said. “The whole community surrounded us and we felt so much love and support. You can’t come here and not feel the sense of community. I love Stillwater so much. Things like this make me never want to leave.”
