The CCAT is a coalition of parents, community members, and representatives of faith communities, government agencies, law enforcement, and other non-profits. CCAT was formed in response to a teen party in 1999. Parents, educators, youth, law enforcement and other government officials began to take steps to educate parents and youth about drug and alcohol use; the group also has sought to support youth oriented activities.
Registrations are still being accepted for cars and motorcycles, which will be professionally judged.

Birthday Greetings
Tom Starr celebrated a special birthday July 27, and I surprised him and my buddy Helen Wilson while they volunteered at the Pilgrim Christian Church Food Pantry. I sang “Happy Birthday” to this great guy who lives here in the summer and enjoys the warmth and beauty of Lake Wales, Fla., during the winter months. Best wishes to him for many birthdays to come.
My friend James Raymond celebrated a birthday earlier in the month and deserves special recognition as well.
Mykaela Penrod-Smith will celebrate her eighth birthday on Aug. 2.
I will also celebrate my birthday on Aug. 8.
