The Seventh Annual Rally for the Kids was held this past weekend at Lakewood Racquet Club in Lexington for youngsters served by Richland County Children Services.

Children who might not be able to experience the joy of playing tennis are given instruction and a chance to play by Lexington High School tennis coach Ron Schaub.

Also working with the children are current and former tennis players from Lexington and Mansfield St. Peter's High Schools.

Seventy-six children signed up for the event.

Each first-time participant receives a free tennis racquet and all of the children are given a free T-shirt and pizza.
