Happy New Year Channel 5 viewers! I hope all your holidays went well. I had the opportunity to spend my holiday with my entire immediate family in Albuquerque, NM. The trip went well except for getting stuck in Santa Rosa for about a day and a half due to that snow storm that hit right before Christmas. But, I survived and got to see my parents, 3 sisters, 2 brother-in-laws, and nieces and nephew. With 2012 here I’m looking forward to everything that the new year has to offer! I have to get back in the groove of things and hit the equipment hard to bring you more fun and local stories!
Last night couldn’t have gone any more smoothly! Right when I walked in (fashionably late that is) the twenties music was playing, the women were wearing feathered headbands and some men had on a twenties fedoras. The food was amazing! The dessert was delicious! And hats off to Paul Hunton for putting together our highlight reel! It was such a different experience watching it in the LHUCA’s movie theater.
Monday evening the Channel 5 team was at the South Plains Food Bank on East 50th Street to help sort food received during their Summer of Sharing celebration. PlainsCapital Bank grilled hot dogs for the volunteers and members of the LDS Church were there with SPFB totes full of food donations.
Tonight from 5-7 the KTXT team will be out at the South Plains Food Bank helping out with their efforts to provide food for those who need it! Don’t worry, I’ll upload some pictures and you’ll have to check out the story we air on it as well TBA.
