For Our Kids Sake trip in need of donations

August 02, 2002|by MARLO BARNHART

While the Aug. 10 For Our Kids Sake bus trip to Paramount's Kings Dominion is more than a week away, Clara Broadus is already watching the skies and checking the weather forecasts.

Last year's trip was delayed by rain, Broadus said. The bus company rescheduled for the following Saturday and Six Flags Park in New Jersey honored the prepurchased tickets, she said.

This summer, four buses are lined up to carry the youngsters to the amusement park. Now Broadus and co-organizer Dot Bell need to collect a little more money to prepurchase all of the tickets. The trip to the Richmond, Va., park costs $49 per child.

While pleased that clubs, organizations, churches, businesses and individuals have responded to the need for $9,200 for the tickets, Broadus said more is needed.
