Children enjoy special gift to county YMCA

Monday, September 20, 2004

Wyatt Croy, 7, plays a video game on the Midway Nintendo "Cruis'n World" donated to the YMCA by Terry and Melody Drake in August.

The Drakes, of Center Point, gave the game in honor of their son, Kyle Drake, who passed away Sept. 2, 2003. Kyle had received the machine from the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Clay County in 1998. His mother said Kyle had many years of fun and pleasure from the game before he died. She said he would be very happy that other children were getting some enjoyment from it.

YMCA acting Executive Director Stephanie Zoll said the machine was almost in constant use during the times that kids were available and not in school.

Wyatt said he really enjoyed the game.

"You know what's different about this game?" he asked Saturday while sitting at the controls. "You don't have to put no quarters in it."
