Oklahoma Blood Institute is having a blood drive at the Robson Performing Arts Center and this one is REALLY important. It's on Monday, April 1, from 8:30a - 2:30p. The need is CRITICAL right now, so they need donors more than ever, which is why they're going to give you a bunch of free stuff. First, you'll get a cute t-shirt. Then, you'll get a coupon for a FREE large Papa John's pizza. You'll also be entered to win a storm shelter from FlatSafe. It's always a wise idea to have a storm shelter 'round these parts. And one more thing: if 150 donors give, a donation of $3,000 will be given to Claremore Public Schools! Last drive had 128 donors, so let's make it happen this time!  Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments get priority, so make yours at OBI.org. There will be 20 beds running all day, so it won't take much...

It’s that windy month of March again (aren’t they all windy in Oklahoma?)! This month we’ll showcase two books about wind from the Early Reader section of the Will Rogers Library. The Poodle Who Barked At The Wind, by Charlotte Zolotow is a cute story about a family with a little black poodle who seems to bark at everything! Busy with the family each day, the dog barks each time the phone rings, each time the doorbell rings and each time the postman arrives to the consternation of the father. One day, the mother, little boy and little girl leave the house and the father is left with the poodle all day. To his surprise he finds out why the little dog has been barking so much! This is a sweet story to read with a child who has a barky dog - or who wants one! This book...
Agustin “Gus” Ramirez was recently awarded the first Mendy Stone Mentor Award from Rogers County Volunteers for Youth. The award was presented at the 6th annual “Chair-ity” Auction. This year’s event and sponsorships brought in nearly $20,000 for the PAL Mentoring Program of Volunteers for Youth. According to the award presenter, Mendy Stone, Ramirez is the type of volunteer that any agency would pray for and even the “Chair-ity” Auction fundraiser was his idea. “Gus is a young at heart, active retiree that has cheerfully participated in every facet of our agency. While serving on our board he provided inspiration and motivation to fellow board members and never missed an opportunity to encourage me and our staff. He attended board training opportunities even when travel and overnight stays were necessary,” said Stone. Ramirez has mentored many young men since joining the organization in 2009 and most of the time it’s been with...
