Little Dixie Community Action Agency celebrated 50 Years of Service on May 18, 2018. The historic event coincided with the annual National Community Action Month celebration. Therefore, clients, employees, families and local businesses spent the day celebrating both the accomplishments of LDCAA as well as the impact Community Action has across the nation.
Representatives from all LDCAA programs were in attendance in order to distribute information on their programs and get acquainted with potential clients. Upon arrival, each person received a 50th Anniversary themed “Swag Bag” which included folders with program brochures, stadium cups and a scavenger hunt puzzle. The puzzle was used to educate the community on LDCAA history and services.
The day was celebrated with hot dogs, yard games, face painting and an exciting giveaway. Upon completion of the 50th Anniversary puzzle, each participant was entered to win one of four gift basket prizes. Each prize was themed around a Little Dixie CAA program including Early Childhood Development/Education, Weatherization/Energy Improvement, Nutritional Health and Personal Hygiene. Each basket went to a deserving and thankful family.
LDCAA would like to thank all employees who assisted in planning, coordinating and volunteering at the 50th Anniversary event. The agency would also like to thank the community for their support over the past 50 years. It is because of clients and volunteers that the reach of Community Action has extended to almost every county in the nation. Little Dixie CAA hopes to continue serving the people of Choctaw, McCurtain and Pushmataha counties for the next 50 years!
