TOT on Out………..
 
The annual “Taste of Texoma” will be held Memorial Day Monday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. in downtown Denison as everyone gets a ‘taste’ of local eateries. TOT benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Denison.
 
“This is our big fund raiser for the year; we really, really need it for scholarships and programs,” explained Ron Nixon, BGC executive director. “It is a critical, critical need for us.”
 
TOT will be held at First Baptist Church Christian Life Center at 601 W. Woodard Street after several years at the Palazzo, which sold last year. TOT was first held in Heritage Park downtown before organizers moved it indoors.
 
According to Nixon, BGC serves about 120 children per day with 90 percent of them on some form of scholarship. This 90 percent figure is up from 68 percent in 2015.
 
In addition to the scholarship/program need, the club is repairing its necessary air conditioning system in the gym portion of the club. This area is used year round for games and organized sports by children of all ages.
 
“TOT is a time when the community can come together and see the kids’ work in the club; and hear the laughter,” said Nixon, in his third year as ED. “Everyone can enjoy themselves and help a great cause.”
 
Nixon noted that there will be as many as 20 local restaurants represented, which will cost one to three tickets (purchased for one dollar each) for a sample. He added that there will be a bounce house, dunking booth, money booth, raffles and kids games.
