Delectable Doggie Delights

 

Happy National Dog Biscuit Day!  Dog is truly man’s best friend.  A dog is always happy to see you, often eager to show it by jumping or barking in its excitement.  We love our dogs and they love us.  They are eager to play or go for a walk.  They are quick to comfort often licking our faces or just placing their head in your lap.  One way we show appreciation is by providing treats.  It’s one way we give our pets a little love or for a job well done.

Artist Sandy Fife Wilson is guest of Lions

By Dean Craig

Okmulgee Lions

 

The Okmulgee Lions Club continues to have a bountiful supply of programs with a local flair, and Tuesday's program was no exception, presented by Morris resident Sandy Fife Wilson.  Part of the reasoning for local programs during the winter months is due to the unpredictability of Oklahoma weather, and the higher probability of local people being able to attend the meeting rather than someone from the Tulsa or Oklahoma City areas during inclement weather.  And also the fact that Wilson was recently awarded the honor and title as Master Artist of the Five Civilized Tribes Museum, following in the footsteps of her oldest sister, Jimmie Carol.

Dinners for Two

St. Valentine’s Day is next Wednesday.  While I think it has become so commercialized it’s almost not worth mentioning, Valentine’s Day has been celebrated for centuries and has been around long before the card companies and flower shops.  This week, I want to tell you about St. Valentine and how this holiday started.

Tuesday's Lions Club program was reminiscent of the ancient TV series "The Honeymooners" with Jackie Gleason muttering his famous line of "How sweet it is"--because the program was about the establishing of the Oklahoma Toffee Company.  The program was presented by Anthony Archie, owner of the company, who outlined the unselfish purpose to start the business in the first place--to donate 20 percent of the profits to teachers state-wide.  I can predict that this business will be successful because God only requires 10 percent (tithes) to support the churches.

30 Minute Entrees

It’s Groundhog Day!  People across the nation will watch as Phil announces whether we will have 6 more weeks of winter or if spring is around the corner.  As holidays go, this is certainly one of the stranger ones we celebrate.  It seems fairly fickle to predict the weather using a rodent seeing its shadow.  It is what it is though.  Let’s take a brief look at groundhogs and how this all started.

Popcorn 

Happy National Popcorn Day!  Popcorn is loved by many as a great snack that is quick and easy to prepare and can be seasoned in so many ways.  There are so many varieties of popcorn you can choose from these days, caramel, kettle, cheddar and of course movie theater butter to name a very few.  There are also different ways to prepare it from stove top to microwave from balling it to dipping it in chocolate!

Okmulgee Alumni Room preserving history

By Dean Craig

Okmulgee Lions

 

When will we ever run out of programs with a local flair for the Okmulgee Lions Club?  Well, apparently not too soon, but that is quite alright with us because every one of them provides us all a first-hand look at what is happening in our community. And Tuesday's program was no exception, provided by Jan Colombin, Okmulgee graduating class of '69.  His topic was the founding and continuing efforts to enhance the Okmulgee Alumni Room, located on the third floor of the high school.

Colombin told us that he had wanted to do this (preserve history) for a long time but it was further enhanced sometime in the 80s when an elderly man gave him a 1947 program of the state championship football team, along with football programs of many years, some even when Colombin played.  And then a lady brought him a 1947 state championship football that she had purchased at a garage sale for 50 cents.
