Zara McMullen (center with teddy bear) sits among friends, family and neighbors at Word of Mouth Sunday afternoon during a benefit for her husband, Michael. The benefit was held to raise money for an Auto-Titrating BI-PAP machine, to address Michael’s rare level of sleep apnea. A steady crowd streamed in, several restaurants provided food throughout the day and several bands, local and from off the Hill, showed up to perform and provide their support. A silent auction was also held at the event. Photo by Barbara Reese
