Giving back – Volunteers come in all ages, with all talents

By DEBRA DUNLAP

The holiday season presents an excellent opportunity to reflect on what we have done in the past year and to set personal goals for the New Year.

We tend to take stock of what we have accomplished and how we’ve spent our time. We think of what is important to us and those around us.

We consider individual New Year’s resolutions, but it’s a good practice to do the same for the community.

With that in mind, during the next few weeks The Bowie News will be highlighting people and organizations in our area who display the holiday spirit all year-around by volunteering to help others and make Montague County a better place to live.

The series opens with the senior citizen centers in Bowie and Nocona.
