Co-op cleans up county eyesore
Special to the Monitor
KAUFMAN–Recently the office staff at the Environmental Co-op cleaned up a stretch of road at the intersection of Griffith Avenue and State Highway 205.
“Armed with gloves, trash bags and safety vests, the four of us made quick work of an eyesore so many of us see many times a week driving between Terrell and Rockwall,” administrator Candice Boswell said.
“It took less than an hour and the results are rewarded immediately by looking around and not seeing trash everywhere,” she added.
The Co-op hopes other offices, families and individuals will clean up spots around them that need it.
“Everyone can help keep Kaufman County clean and green with just a pair of gloves and a few minutes of time,” Boswell explained.

 

Toys for Tots reports a successful year
Monitor Staff Reports
GUN BARREL CITY–Toys for Tots experienced a productive year with donations providing Christmas dinner and toys for many families, Jane Horton, president of the Gun Barrel City Toys for Tots, said.
The group especially thanks Nathan Bullard of Golden Belle Bingo for his extraordinary support of Toys for Tots.
Golden Belle sponsored the raffle ticket event by purchasing a spot on the ticket and sponsored a benefit which resulted in approximately $1,000 in funds.
The employees donated their tips for the night and employees personally shopped for toys and clothing for some recipients.
Bullard also made a substantial personal contribution.
“This type of generosity is so appreciated and makes a Merry Christmas possible for many children in our area who otherwise would not have those gifts under the tree and that Christmas dinner to enjoy with their families,” Horton said.
“Thanks Golden Belle, you are special to us,” she added.

 

Teachers expand childcare skills
Special to The Monitor
MALAKOFF–Seven teachers from the Learning Express earned their Child Development Associate certification (CDA).
These teachers traveled to Coppell, for a five month training in Early Childcare and Education.
The program included instruction on brain development, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Abusive Head Trama-Shaken Baby Syndrome.
In addition, teachers were advised on child health and safety, communication techniques, behavior, positive environments, classroom management, creativity, and much more.
The Leaning Express encourages teachers to improve their skills and further their knowledge in early childhood behavior.
