pitch and Ryan Gassman singled, but Gassman was forced out at second.

Ozarka boosts EASA
Eustace All Sports Association commissioner Casey Herring (left) shakes
hands with Ozarka Plant Manager Bill King following the donation of 20
new football helmets and 1,700 bottles of water to the EASA program.
Special to The Monitor
EUSTACE–Ozarka Natural Spring Water donated 1,700 bottles of water and
purchased 20 new custom football helmets for the Eustace All Sports
Association (EASA) to help their growing football program.
Ozarka presented the 20 football helmets to EASA Football Commissioner
Casey Herring at the annual EASA basketball banquet March 24.
EASA is a non-profit organization providing sports activities for kids
in grades K-6. Annually, EASA offers football, cheerleading, basketball
and baseball/softball for youth girls and boys in Eustace who live
within the Eustace Independent School District.
“Team sports are an important part of building self-confidence and
self-esteem in kids,” said EASA Football Commissioner Casey Herring. “As
an organization, we try to provide sponsorships for kids who can’t
afford to play, and we try to provide equipment for these children as
well. Unfortunately, we can’t sponsor as many as we would like.
“We are very grateful to Ozarka for recognizing the importance of our
organization and stepping up to help these kids in need,” Herring added.
“These helmets will make a huge difference to our kids and our teams
here in Eustace.”
Ozarka has been a corporate neighbor in Eustace for more than 10 years.
The company annually provides water and sponsorships for local charities
and businesses and, since 2002, has offered a $2,500 academic
scholarship annually to one graduating Eustace High School senior.
“This is a special day for all of us at Ozarka,” said Ozarka Plant
Manager Bill King. “I grew up in East Texas and played football here –
it was an important part of my life and something I’m proud to have been
a part of.
“A lot of life lessons are learned out on a football field, and Ozarka
is very happy to support EASA’s coaches and kids,” King added.
