On Wednesday, Nov. 18, 76 high school juniors from nine area schools met to participate in CECA’s Annual Student Leadership Conference. During the course of the event, student teams were given the assignment of assembling 10 children’s bicycles, with various challenges inserted into the activity. The assembled bicycles were then donated to local Christmas charities. Pictured accepting the bicycles for Toys for Kids, along with the students who assembled them, are Scott Martin and Justin Prince. Toys for Kids annually serves more than 500 families. Signups will begin Nov. 30 at the Grand Starz at 2323 Belle Plain. Monetary donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 912, Brownwood, TX. Donations and volunteers are always welcome! Distribution day for 2015 will be Dec. 19.
