Blacks, Operation St. Nick put wheels on the street
Now in its 10th year, program has given bikes to 500 children
In 2003, Augie and Marie Black started a tradition with Operation St. Nick.
That tradition, this year, marks its 10th anniversary, and has resulted in a total of 500 local children having new bicycles to ride.
The Blacks began the tradition that first year by donating $5,000 to Operation St. Nick and simply asking the organization to find children in Grundy County who didn't have a bike because of financial burdens on the family. The organization was told to see to it that 50 or so children received new bikes in time for the Memorial Day weekend.
