From the Cochran Car Show's website:

We are hoping to collect as many toys as possible for needy families so any money donations will also be used to purchase toys.

All toys and donations will remain in the community.

Longtime Coach Recognized At Annual Turkey Trot Race

Longtime Coach Recognized At Annual Turkey Trot Race

For the past ten years, runners, cyclists, walkers and others have gathered at the home of Richard and Dee Davis to participate in the annual Turkey Trot. 

This year though, there was something extra. 

About a week before the race, efforts had began to get as many former runners of BCHS and BCMS Cross Country Coach Shelly Cranford to attend.  Richard Davis had made plans to surprise Cranford with the gathering of former runners as part of an effort to show appreciation for Cranford's many years of hard work and devotion.
