Lucille North then became a volunteer with involvement in the Kiwanis Club, Weatherford Area Chamber of Commerce and Meals on Wheels. She drove the senior citizens van, taking seniors to doctor's appointments and church functions. She was awarded the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Weatherford Area Chamber of Commerce at age 85.

Mike North graduated from Weatherford High School in 1973. He served four years in the U.S. Navy and graduated from Southwestern in December 1980 with degrees in accounting and economics. He worked in public accounting and real estate development, and in 1986 purchased a child care center, building the business into 11 centers with the capacity to serve 1,750 children. In 2011, the business was sold to a national company.
