The holidays are officially here and the community is gearing up for an array of events to bring one another together and to give thanks. 

Here are some highlights from the week of November 15-19. 

The Alice Coyote Athletic Booster Club

The Alice Coyote Athletic Booster Club awarded the Alice High School swim program a check for $3,000 for this swim season. The swim program earned the donation by volunteering at the booster club's concession stand this football season.
