Pike County Bar Association Gives Joy at CDD Christmas Party

Jan 2nd, 2013 | By | Category: In Your Town

The Pike County Bar Association (PCBA) sponsored the Center for Developmental Disabilities’ (CDD) annual Christmas party this week where Santa Claus delivered over 167 Christmas presents donated by the Bar Association.

PCBA President Elizabeth A. Erickson Kameen, Esq. praised the bar association and its members for their continuing generosity in our community.  “The generosity of our members when it comes to giving to the community is phenomenal” commented President Erickson Kameen.  She added that  “PCBA member Tony Waldron along with his wife, Debby Waldron, donated countless hours by personally shopping for the many great gifts and then making numerous trips to transport all the gifts to CDD for the children.”

The gifts were purchased with funds from the Pike County Bar Association.

The Pike County Bar Association has participated in the CDD gift giving program for many years under a program originally started and sponsored by the late Milford attorney and humanitarian, Jack Linshaw (a past PCBA President).  The Waldrons took over the tradition after Jack Linshaw and have continued to purchase bar sponsored gifts for CDD through the Pike County Bar Association for the last 20 years.

Executive Director Ann Gillerlane stated, “We are most grateful to the members of the Pike County Bar Association for the contributions they provide to the Center for Developmental Disabilities.  Without their continued support CDD would not be able to continue to expand our programs and services to the entire community particularly during these tough economic times.”  “On behalf of our staff, our families and the children we serve, we thank the Pike County Bar Association for their generosity and continued partnership.”
