Thirty-three underprivileged children had their dreams come true Saturday as they shopped for their own and family members’ gifts. They were helped by members of the Platte County Sheriff’s Department and Wal-Mart.
“I think it’s wonderful,” said Isabella’s mother, Christina. “There’s great interaction with the officers, and the kids aren’t just thinking about themselves.”
Each child had a budget of $180 for clothing, with another $70 for toys, crafts, games and activities. Most bought gifts for their family members as well as themselves.
Bre’Asia, one of the shoppers, watched as Officer James Scott performed a magic trick with his ring. However, she said the best part of the day was shopping with Averi Scott, center, James’ daughter..

Recycled:     1008 Washington Street – 1932, two-bedroom bungalow- Baily Hiatt 
The youngest home on the tour at just 90-years old, this charming bungalow was built at the tail end of  the American Bungalow architectural movement (1905-1930s). Few true bungalows were built after the early 30s. The current owner, teacher Bailey Hiatt, comes from a family who owns an auction house, and she has grown up amongst collectors experienced in discovering pieces that are authentic and historic.
