THERE ARE MANY IN TEXOMA WHO DEDICATE A LITTLE OF THEIR TIME TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS.
AND THEN THERE ARE OTHERS WHO ARE ABLE TO COMMIT MANY HOURS TO A VARIETY OF CAUSES.
ALICIA EASON IS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO MAKE LIFE SO MUCH BETTER FOR SO MANY.... AND FOR HER DEDICATION TO HELPING OTHERS IN OUR COMMUNITY WE HONOR HER WITH THIS MONTH'S SPIRIT OF TEXOMA AWARD.
I feel like I have a desire to help and if there is any way I can help I want to do it, I feel like that is what I have been put here for.
AND THAT'S WHY SEVERAL AFTERNOONS THROUGHOUT THE WEEK YOU'LL FIND ALICIA EASON HERE AT THE YMCA BILL BARTLEY BRANCH...LIKE MANY OTHER DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS SHE SPENDS TIME HELPING KIDS IN THE CHILDCARE PROGRAM.
They are a huge help, they have a great time with the kids and the kids learn from them, it is just great to have people who care about kids so much, volunteering their time to help.
ALICIA ALSO HOSTS TOURS AT THE KELL HOUSE...AS WELL AS HELPING WITH SETUP FOR SPECIAL EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
AND WHEN THE HOTTER N HELL HUNDRED BIKE RIDE ROLLS AROUND, ALICIA IS ALSO THERE TO HELP.
IN FACT DURING LAST YEAR'S EVENT SHE CAME ACROSS A FAMILIAR FACE WHILE WORKING A BUSY REGISTRATION TABLE.
It was funny cause we got so busy, I was taking money the day of the Hotter N Hell and I'm like 37 dollars for late registration and taking money, taking money and then the next person in line was my Dad and I'm like 37 dollars, hi Dad, how's it going. (laughs)
SO FROM HELPING THE YOUNG...TO THE YOUNG AT HEART ALICIA'S DRIVE COMES FROM WHAT SHE SAYS IS A SIMPLE CONCEPT IN LIFE.
You are supposed to give, not get.
AND GIVING IS EXACTLY WHAT ALICIA IS DOING DAY IN AND DAY OUT.
SHE TRULY HAS THE SPIRIT OF TEXOMA.
ALICIA ALSO HELPS EACH HALLOWEEN IN TRANSFORMING
THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB INTO THE CHAMBER OF HORRORS.
AND SHE'S ALSO A CHEERLEADER FOR THE WILDCATS HOCKEY TEAM.
OWENS AND BRUMLEY FUNERAL HOMES CONGRATULATES ALICIA ON HER AWARD FOR GIVING TO SO MANY IN TEXOMA.
AND IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO TRULY DISPLAYS THE SPIRIT OF TEXOMA...NOMINATE THEM NOW.
