F Troop delivers toys to kids

Santa cruised into low income housing areas of Burney, Johnson Park, Fall River Mills, and McArthur on Saturday morning December 16 to deliver toys to lots of happy children.

Santa was assisted by dozens of fellow members of the local F Troop motorcycle club. Some of the members, wearing festive Christmas attire and hats, rode  their bikes. Others drove vehicles laden with gifts for the children.

This is the 17th year that F Troop has conducted their Christmas toy run. This year, they raised more $2000 to buy gifts and batteries. Most of the money was raised at their annual summer yard sale.

Meyers Memorial Hospital’s Stuff the Ambulance Toy Drive also donated many toys for the occasion.

Club President Greg Trotter and his wife Carol helped to organize this year’s event with the help of lots of volunteers. Tim Covert, a past VFW Post Commander, served as Santa and led the delivery procession on his three wheeled sleigh.
