Rec dept. project in memory of Wayne Owens

VALDESE — To many, Wayne Owens is the father of the Valdese Recreation Department, overseeing it and serving citizens from the 1950s through the 1970s. Fast-forward five decades later and his memory lives on among both current and former Valdese residents, some of whom now are working toward renovating the upstairs portion of the Valdese Recreation Center in his memory.
