Five year old Ronnie Wheeler received his brand new Amtryke on Sunday, Sept. 18 in Tremont. Ronnie's Amtryke was made possible by a contribution from the Dream Factory.


Also on Sunday, Greg and Becky Neaveill headed over to the home of Christopher Stovall's home in Tremont to adjust his Amtryke that he received last year. Thank you Greg for being a true AMBUCS.
