SURRY COUNTY, N.C.-- Tomorrow is Katie's Day in Surry County.

Last fall the Surry Central senior, confined to a wheelchair after an automobile 20 years ago, was named homecoming queen.

Now, the community is working to build her and her family a new functional home, so that her wheelchair can fit through the doors.

Operation Katie will take place at Fisher River Park in Dobson from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
