Employees of AES Shady Point donated money they raised for two area organizations by hosting a silent auction during their annual employee Christmas Party. The employees raised more than $3,600 at the event. The Christian Free Medical Clinic and LeFlore County Youth Services each received checks in the amount of $1,834, after being chosen by AES employees as the beneficiaries of their fundraising efforts. Checks were presented by Lundy Kiger, second from right, AES vice president and director of government and community relations; to clinic co-manager Mary Helen Lucas, second from left; First Christian Church pastor Tracy Ellis, far left; and Youth Services Director Terri Krebs, far right. Sara Jobe (not pictured) is the other clinic co-manager.
