Deacons of Deadwood makes donation
Deacons of Deadwood recently donated $10,000 to Workshop Houston, a nonprofit organization that provides children with creative, technical and educational resources.
The motorcycle group rode together to present the check.
The money was raised from the auction of a bicycle built by Participants of Workshop Houston.
“We’re honored to have an opportunity to meet these amazing young people who built such a beautiful bike and we’re inspired by their work,” said Steve Lamb, Deacons of Deadwood president, according to a press release. “Workshop Houston is an incredible organization and we’re happy to be able to support them.”
Founded in 2002, Deacons of Deadwood is a group of leather-wearing motorcycle enthusiasts. Members ride thousands of miles every year and are firmly committed to raising money for local children’s charities.

Theater presents ‘Four Maps to Bethlehem’
A.D. Players Children’s Theater is now presenting the Christmas play “Four Maps to Bethlehem.”
The play, written by former A.D. Player Marion Arthur Kirby, focuses on 10-year-old Joseph, who has no desire to be cast in a Christmas play. He goes on to learn that the Christmas story is an even greater adventure than saving the universe as Space Captain of Galaxy Starship, according to a theater press release.
“It is with great pleasure that we present to you ‘Four Maps to Bethlehem’ this Christmas! The story is told through the eyes of a ten-year-old with an extraordinary imagination which leads him on an adventure to discover the true meaning of Christmas,” said Kevin Dean, the director of children’s theater at A.D. Players, in a press release.
Performances are at 10:30 a.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays until Saturday, Dec. 22. Performances at 1 p.m. will be offered Thursday to Saturday, Dec. 6-8, and Thursday, Dec. 13.
Tickets are $10 for individuals, $6 for groups of 10 or more and $5 for Title 1 schools.
Performances are at the Rotunda theater inside St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 3471 Westheimer Road.

San Jacinto Girl Scouts expands campgrounds
The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council organization is currently developing its Camp Myra S. Pryor property, located in Nada, to accommodate its growing membership and expansion of programs.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held in October to mark the beginning of construction on the camp’s ranch site, one of three sites that maximizes the camp’s varied terrain.
The camp encompasses 277 acres. In addition to the ranch site, a lake site and river site will also be developed to offer a range of diverse programs focusing on conservation education.
Camp Pryor’s new eco-friendly design will turn it into a destination for 3,800 girls and adults each year. Updates will also be made to current cabins in addition to the construction of new ones.
All updates and construction are expected to be finished in five years.
