Recently, I was asked to put together an entry for a public service award given by the Texas Association of Broadcasters called the "Bonner McLane". As I was putting everything together I had to stop and reflect on what an amazing year this has been. And by amazing I mean uplifting, heartbreaking, heartwarming, tragic and wonderful.
When you are truly involved in your community you will feel every emotion. From May of last year to June of this year we, as a community, have been through a lot together! We have cried over the tragic loss of our Wounded Warriors. We have fallen in love with many abandoned doggies and kitties and many of you have provided new forever homes for these special animals. We have given to children, the hungry, victims of domestic violence and more!
Every time we asked, you gave. Wherever there was a need, you filled it. In fact, the dollar amount that was collected from you, our faithful listeners, was so tremendous that the Texas Association of Broadcasters has given this year's "Bonner McLane" Award for Public Service by a Radio Station in a Medium Market to Kicks 991!
We just want to say that YOU won this award. Texas has recognized that when it comes to generosity...Kicks 991 listeners have GREAT BIG HEARTS! And we humbly thank you.
