What would be a very special moment for a father and daughter to share? A Father ~ Daughter Valentine Dance and the Okmulgee YMCA is providing just that.

On February 6, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm the fathers and daughters will be gathering to have a great time at this annual event in the YMCA gym.  The tickets for members cost $25.00 for one child and $10.00 for each additional daughter.  The non-member cost is $30.00.  

The gym will be decorated and they will have refreshments with punch and cookies. There will be a DJ providing the dance music and they will be taking pictures to commemorate the event.

Felicia Barron of the YMCA told ONN that they have a really good turnout for this event. Barron said, “They seem to just have a blast, the little girls get all dressed up, they just eat it up and they enjoy it with their daddies.”  She also stated, “They also have some Grandpa’s that bring their granddaughters.”

The YMCA welcomes all fathers and daughters to come to the event and the deadline for purchasing tickets is February 1, 2016.

Would you like to improve your physical health, balance, muscle strength, flexibility, mobility, or mental health? The Free Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance class can help you achieve all of these goals through slow, low-impact movements that can be done standing or sitting.

Classes will meet for an hour once a week at 1:30pm at the Okmulgee Library, Basement Meeting Room, 218 S. Okmulgee Ave, beginning Thursday, January 14.

Not sure if Tai Chi is for you? The first session on January 14th will include an introduction and discussion to answer any questions you might have. For more information or to enroll please contact Stephanie Plante-Burks with the Okmulgee County Health Department at (918) 756-1883 x151.

Boy Scout Troop 102 will be having a Chicken Fried Steak Dinner Saturday, November 14th from 11:00 – 3:00 at the St. Anthony Catholic Church Activity Center. The menu includes chicken fried steak, salad, vegetable, mashed potatoes, dessert and drink, all for only $7.00. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 918-857-6112.

Troop 102 is very active in the community, participating in the posting the colors for the Relay for Life, volunteering with the Salvation Army, helping Rebold Manor with activities, and participating in Veteran’s Day activities to name a few. Troop 102 also camps out every month and participates in Council activities such as merit badge fairs and Camporees. The scouts attend summer camp at Camp Hale for a week each summer. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

“We appreciate the support Okmulgee community has given to our Troop 102. This fundraiser helps in so many ways but my ultimate goal is to buy a trailer for the Scouts to store and transport their gear and equipment for camping,” stated Robert Marek, Scout Master.

We invite all boys at least age 11 or in the 6Th grade to 12th grade to join us. Troop 102 meets Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm in the St. Anthony Parish Hall. For information please call Robert Marek at 918 758-9143.
