The Tehachapi Martial Arts Center (TMAC) celebrated their 28th Annual End of the Year Party and gift exchange at the studio on Dec. 13. The party traditionally has been held at a restaurant or has been a pot luck at either the Jadrics' estate or a private home. This year, however, the party was held at the studio and a good time was had by all. The Center collects toys twice a year to donate to Toys for Tots for Christmas in July and at the Christmas season. Both toy drives are sponsored by Marty Pay of Farmers Insurance. The Toys for Tots collection this season numbered 803 toys! One of the student's fathers organized a special collection of toys through Outsource Company, at which he is employed. He and his fellow employees donated a large percentage of the toys collected by TMAC. The Center offers a very special "thank you" to Outsource Company for their generosity and good will during this season of giving. The Jadrics also extend their sincere appreciation to the parents and children at the studio for their overwhelming spirit of philanthropy. The Jadrics express their best wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
