  • Games, coloring books among items collected for Nab, Meffords

    A Carrollton youth is collecting games to honor his friends Kameron Nab and Conner and Dane Mefford.

    Trystan Amick, with help from his mother Belinda, came up with the idea to hold a “game drive” as a way to help his friends and others who have to frequent hospitals for medical treatment.

    His mother explained that games wear out quickly because, between each use, they have to be wiped down before being used again. They simply don’t last long under those conditions.
