<p><strong>Trike-A-Thon</strong></p><p>On May 6 the children of Joyful Days Daycare conducted their annual St. Judes trike-a-thon. The 14 trike riders, staff and nine volunteers were escorted by the Booneville Police Department to the Assembly of God Church where they enjoyed the morning riding trikes to raise money for kids battling cancer and other diseases. Joyful Days raised $1,519.87 for St. Judes Children’s Research Hospital while teaching valuable riding safety tips to the children. Joyful Days would like to thank Simple Simons, Pizza Italia, Kelli Eaves, Ben Villarreal, the Arkansas Wildlife Officers Association as well as all the family, friends and sponsors donating to the cause.</p>
