(ROCKWALL, TX – July 27, 2015) Lakeside AMBUCS of Rockwall presented two new Amtrykes to a couple of super excited and enthusiastic kids Saturday morning at the State Farm office of Brian Llewellyn in Heath.

A post from Lakeside AMBUCS on its Facebook page read:
“We are so blessed by having the opportunity to present these two beautiful young ladies their trykes this morning. Sophia and Jasmine were so happy to ride on their trykes and had huge smiles and lots of hugs! Thank you to all who attended and to Brian and his staff at State Farm for hosting us this morning!”
