The Y Kicks Off A Year of Changes

The Y Kicks Off A Year of Changes

 A handful of future leaders were honored Thursday night at the YMCA Annual Campaign Kickoff Banquet.


   Dr. Rafael Perez was the keynote speaker and spoke on the Butterfly Effect and how a small change or one person can result in a big difference.  The children honored are an example of that and the Y's founding statement of Christian principals through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. 

    $900,000 in scholarships was given out in 2013, because no one is turned away because they can't pay.  The Y hopes to beat that number over the next 2 weeks during it's campaign and reach it's $125,000 goal.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
