A couple of months ago, representatives from LINN Energy came before the Borger EDC Board of Directors to introduce themselves and share some of their ideas for what they planned to do in the region. They were preparing to increase their presence within the Borger community, which includes the building of a new regional office.
Being a relatively new business within the Borger community, Jim Boden of LINN Energy told the EDC board during that meeting that one of the goals of the company is to be a great neighbor in the community by showing its support to local organizations and charities.
Borger is set to observe the National Day of Prayer this coming Thursday.
The event will take place starting at 12 p.m. Thursday, May 5, at the Veteransâ€™ Memorial at Huber Park.
The theme of this yearâ€™s event is â€śA Mighty Fortress Is Our God,â€ť and the theme verse is Psalm 91:2, â€śI will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.â€ť
Various citizens in the community will be lifting prayer in conjunction with the seven centers of power, which are the government, the military, the media, business, education, church, and family.
There were many Americans who rejoiced and feel as if a huge weight has been lifted off their shoulders when the death of Osama Bin Laden was announced on the night of May 1,2011.
Itâ€™s been almost 10 years since the tragic events of 9/11. However, asking the community of the Hutchinson County area what its opinion on the matter and their reactions when they first heard the news was of a similar beat.
Logan Carrillo of Borger stated â€śGod bless the Victims of 9/11 and the USA.â€ť
