[size=18pt]THE NETWORK CHILDREN’S BOOK RUN[/size]
The Network of Community Ministries in Richardson provides food, shelter, clothing, counseling, health care, school supplies, and books to children in need. Especially around Christmas, entertaining children’s books are a most popular item, but one that runs out fast, as most donors concentrate on more serious needs of the client families. So we decided to put on a roadrally, and ask the rally community to bring one new (or two gently used) kid’s book to the rally, to be presented to Network. Any age, any subject, any author, just so long as the book is intended for children.
Registration opens on Saturday Dec. 3, at 9:00am, starting at Tomes Subaru in McKinney. Preregister at www.tinyurl.com/NBR11msr
to save $5 (and receive the event rules early). For more information go to www.texasscca.org

We are happy to announce the support of Autoscope Park Cities, a foreign car care company located not far from Love Field. They are not only providing the awards and dash plaques for the event, but will ask their customers to donate children’s books to add to our collection on December 3rd.
The rally will be a typical fun event, a part of our Championship RoadRally Series, with kid’s books, stories, and nursery rhymes forming a theme for some of the questions you must answer along the way. The start is at Brandon Tomes Subaru, at 900 S Central Expy in McKinney, and the finish will be at El Pueblo Mexican Restaurant, at 1909 Texoma Pkwy, in Sherman. The route features a stretch of Texas highway with over 20 curve warning signs in its 14 mile length…and no cute signs to find on this road.
We already have one Mazda3 entered in our rally, and one Miata. We would love to see more of you....
Join us for a fun drive on some great roads!
