    The Pike County Bar Association (PCBA) sponsored the Center for Developmental Disabilities’ (CDD) annual Christmas party recently 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 continuous generosity in the community. "The generosity of our members when it comes to giving to the community is phenomenal" said Kameen. Tony Waldron and his wife, Debby Waldron, donated their time, personally shopping for the gifts and then making numerous trips to transport all the gifts to CDD for the children Kameen added.
    The gifts were purchased with funds from the Pike County Bar Association. For years, the Pike County Bar Association has participated in the CDD gift giving program 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 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 thanked the members of the Pike County Bar Association for the contributions they provide to the Center for Developmental Disabilities. Without their continued support, Gillerlane said CDD would not be able to expand the programs and services to the entire community during these tough economic times.
