KOCO TV wanted to know what makes our town so special so we told them. Last month I submitted five pages full of things that make Guthrie so great in response to their On the Road “Helping Hands Tour”. This past week I heard back from them saying we were one of the five towns chosen! That means KOCO will be broadcasting the 5:00 and 6:00 news live from the parking lot North of Jelsma Stadium, Friday, September 14th. The TV anchors will arrive sometime mid morning and will be hands on in helping with various projects around town. They will also be filming the game of the week against Enid. We invite you to come out for all of the activities that will be going on at 4p.m. on Harrison Avenue in front of Jelsma Stadium!
September 11th at 6p.m. KSBI will have a town meeting at the Pollard Theatre for their Guthrie Land Run show. Vince Orza will welcome everyone and talk a little about KSBI. Then folks from Guthrie can come up and make presentations. During the day of the meeting, Mac Troy and his photographer Jack will come to town to interview some key people about what’s going on in town. Then, on September 26th, Oklahoma Live will feature KSBI’s Land Run trip to Guthrie. So please help us represent Guthrie in a big way by attending!
The Reading Wonder group is starting their annual tutoring program for reading and is looking for more tutors. It is every Monday afternoon from 3-5 pm in the Community Church activity bldg. 512 East Seward Road. All that is needed is the willingness to spend some time with a student helping them to read. The students come from Fogarty Elementary and are in 2nd and 3rd grade. If anyone is interested or know of someone that would be interested please call Susan at 820-2099.
The Pollard Presents “Forever Plaid” is the deliciously goofy and charming story of The Plaids, a classic 1950s all-male singing group who return from the Great Beyond to perform the show they never got to when they were alive! Audiences will be rolling in the aisles and tapping their toes as The Plaids are miraculously revived to perform the concert that ‘never was’ in the hilariously nostalgic musical. They perform precision harmonies, squabble boyishly and execute their delightfully outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision. The Plaids perform some of the greatest hits of the 1950s: “Catch a Falling Star,” “Three Coins in the Fountain,” “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing” and “Magic Moments”.
