Meet This Year’s GRAND MARSHALL — Cindy Lindley
Former Governor of the South-Cental Region Ladies Soroptimist International and Past President of the Rockwall County Children’s Advocacy Center
Not many know that Cindy Lindley was one of two persons (the other being Kenda Culpepper Rockwall County DA), that AGMC TX28A initially met and conferred with 8 years ago, about hosting a Motorcycle Teddy Bear Ride to benefit the newly created Rockwall County Children’s Advocacy Center.
For the past 8 years, Cindy has served as the volunteer liaison between the CAC and Americas Guardians Motorcycle Club, who host the Bikes for Tykes fundraiser that benefits the CACRC.
She has attended and participated in their many planning meetings, assisted with the silent auction set ups and solicited volunteers to help. This collaboration continues as the 8 th annual Bikes for Tykes Teddy Bear Ride will be held this year on September 17, 2023.
Just look at some of the credentials and accomplishments of Mrs. Cindy Lindley. Impressive indeed!!
Cindy Lindley is a leader and has been a leader in her community since arriving from Illinois in 1985. Her passion, selflessness, energy, and generosity motivate her to identify unmet needs, especially those of women and children, and find solutions to help make a difference.
Cindy has made a huge difference as a member of Soroptimist International of Rockwall, the Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County task force and CACRC Board of Directors, and the CAC liaison on the Bike for Tykes Teddy Bear Ride committee. She has worked tirelessly to create and continue projects for these non-profits that make a notable difference in the Rockwall community.
During Cindy’s 26-year membership as a Rockwall Soroptimist, she has served in several board positions, including president of the club, and chaired several events and projects. She also served on Soroptimist International of the Americas South Central Region Board of Directors, holding several offices, including Governor.
Cindy is also a board member of the Soroptimist House and was instrumental in helping create the Rockwall CAC and helping the Rockwall Soroptimist become one of the 6 Founder’s Guild Members.
When Rockwall’s District Attorney, Kenda Culpepper, approached the Soroptimist Club about using their house for a children’s advocacy center, Cindy immediately volunteered and became the spokesperson for the Club and a leader on the task force. She spearheaded fundraising efforts, worked on every organizational committee, and kept everyone moving to achieve this much-needed goal.
Once the CACRC doors opened, Cindy served as vice president and then president of the board of directors. She remains very involved in the day-to-day activities of the CAC by working closely with the CEO, Patricia Mejia, and is actively involved in raising money to build a new facility to provide the needed services for the abused children in Rockwall.
Cindy has also been recognized and honored for her volunteer work by other organizations. She has received the annual and prestigious Eloise Cullum Soroptimist of the Year Award five times, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Excellence in Community Service Award, and the Meals on Wheels Senior Services Award three times.
The Rockwall community is fortunate to have a volunteer who is so dedicated in her determination to make a difference in the lives of women and children.
Rockwall County Bikes for Tykes and AGMC are proud to have Cindy Lindley as the 2023 Grand Marshal for this event!!

This is our 8th year hosting the Rockwall County Bike for Tykes Teddy Bear Ride!!
All proceeds go to the kids at The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) in Rockwall, TX.
America’s Guardians MC is a cornerstone supporter of the CAC!!
The CAC runs solely on donations.
There are several ways — large and small — for you to participate & help support this incredible organization!
The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC)
Our CAC is open for the kids in their greatest hour of need, and offers multiple in-house services.
All of the kids that come in get to pick out their own bear, this gives them a little something to hold onto and clutch as their own after enduring a traumatic event.
When family violence happens, The CAC helps them get through this.
All of this is very traumatic for children, The Rockwall CAC has all of these services under one roof.
All of the money raised in our Teddy Bear Ride supports this program.
The CAC depends on donations from the community to help keep the facility staffed and fully prepared to help these kids.
By April of 2022, unfortunately, Rockwall CAC has experienced a 70% increase in child abuse in our community.
Not only does our Teddy Bear Ride collect Teddy Bears, but we also raised $40,000.00 this past year to help maintain this center and support the work they do.

Please take a few minutes to listen to this short video from an abuse survivor.
Detective Timothy Rountree is a highly decorated child abuse detective and pastor of a church in Dallas — he was also sexually abused as a child. He was the Keynote Speaker at the International Crimes Against Children Conference 2020.
