As in the past several years, Beta Nu angel trees went up both branches of Cadiz and Integra banks, as well as Heritage Bank, the weekend before Thanksgiving. Each Christmas tree was adorned with names of children that people could adopt to give Christmas gifts. Parents came by the Baptist Church’s activity building to pick up the gifts on Saturday between nine and 11 a.m. Beta Nu member Brannigan Free said it is always a pleasure to see the delight on the parents’ faces.
“They’re eyes are just huge,” Free said. “They’re overwhelmed.”
Free said that after the Dec. 5 Cadiz Record story that reported that there were 17 total angels left, the rest “flew” off the trees. She said there were many individuals who repeated their commitments from past years. She said the Cadiz Rotary Club adopted 25 and that the Cadiz Baptist Church adopted 20. She said a few Trigg County Public Schools classes also adopted many of them, including the fifth and seventh grades.
