Christmas surprise

An area company gave several children in Cameron a very merry Christmas last week. According to Cameron Police Chief Randy Dixon, the City of Cameron received a call Thursday, Dec. 22, saying that on Tuesday, Dec. 27, that Waste Management Inc., the city’s refuse collection agency, was going to bring eight new bicycles to the city for distribution to kids who did not have bikes. City Manager Rhett Parker asked the police department to handle the distribution. The bikes along with helmets were delivered to the department and officers Clay Domel and Chris Ashworth along with Dixon distributed the bikes by driving through several areas of town looking for kids playing without a bike. Ten kids were given bikes. Dixon said the kids were nothing but smiles and the department looked for kids and families who they believed were in need. He said the only regret was they wish they had 100 more to give away.
