The Mon County Amateur Radio Club gave back to an area family who recently lost everything in a fire.

The club worked with Wal-Mart and the North Central Wireless Association to present the family with bicycles. The presentation took place at St. Mary’s Church in Star City during the radio club’s Hamfest on Saturday.

“They didn’t know what they were getting. They asked their Dad yesterday, why are we going to church on Saturday instead of Sunday. So, they had no idea they were getting the bikes. It was just a nice gesture that we thought we would give back to the community,” said Allen Harris, President of Mon County Amateur Radio Club.
