The City of Borger Park Recreation Program has been rolling along this summer, and would not be the success it is without the aid of various community members and leaders.
Annadon Keys, director of the Johnson Park Youth Center, said if it was not for the amazing donations, the children participating in the program would not be able to do everything they get to do. She said she was thankful for the efforts of the Morley Theatre, Wildcatters, and the Circle Roller Rink in opening their doors to the children this summer.
The Red Hat Mamas gathered for a special â€śChristmas in Julyâ€ť party Thursday afternoon at the Wesley United Methodist Church on Valley Drive. Hot dogs and all the trimmings were served. Attendants were asked to bring canned food/personal care items for Helping Hands or toys/clothes for foster children (Rainbow Room) ages 0-18 years old. Cash donations given will be divided between the two charities. Among those attending the â€śChristmas in Julyâ€ť party were Blanche Gipson, Whitney Bates, Cris Roberts, Delpha Ennis, Betty Kaylor, and Sheila Bates.
