On April 28, 2015, OSU Prevention Programs will be hosting Responsible Beverage Service and Sales (RBSS) Training in Okmulgee County. This is a merchant training for those who sell or serve alcohol or 3.2 beer. The training will be held at The Henryetta Housing Authority located at 1708 West Ragan in Henryetta from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“Prevention of Youth Access to Alcohol Act" is an Oklahoma state law that protects youth from the harmful effects of alcohol use by making it illegal to provide or sell alcohol or 3.2 beer to anyone under the age of 21. This law is continually being enforced by law enforcement agencies. If this harmful substance is sold to a person under the legal age, the contributor will face legal consequences consisting of an expensive citation, possible jail time, and/or felony charges.

RBSS Training is an opportunity for all alcohol sellers and servers to learn about Oklahoma State Laws. Sellers and servers include store clerks, restaurant wait staff, bartenders, managers, employers, and owners of any alcohol vendor located in Okmulgee County. The training will, also, provided important tips on how and why it is important to implement safe practices when selling alcohol and 3.2 beer.

The Responsible Beverage Service and Sales training is free of charge and will be held at The Henryetta Housing Authority starting at 1:00 p.m. Attendees will be provided with informational packets and light refreshments will be served. Confirmation of your attendance and the number of participants will be appreciated. For more information, questions, and to RSVP call Margaret Black at 918-756-1248.

2015 Holy Day Calendar

Passover (Observer evening before) April 3
Days of Unleavened Bread April 4 - 10
Pentecost May 24
Feast of Trumpets September 14
Day of Atonement September 23
The Feast of Tabernacles September 28 - October 4
The Last Great Day October 5

In biblical reckoning, days begin in the evening (Genesis:1:5), when the sun goes down (Joshua:8:29; 2 Chronicles:18:34; Mark:1:32), and are counted "from evening to evening" (Leviticus:23:32).

The feast days of God are a time of happiness, not just because of their meaning, but because of the wonderful hope they promise for all mankind. They are a pattern of the history of our Creator and a pattern and roadmap for the future of things to come.  Observing the Holy Days reminds us of God's great love for humanity. Worshiping God in this way is a joy and pleasure. These festivals truly are God's gifts to His people!

Did you know that God has Holy Days that reveal His plan of Salvation? Man has substituted his holidays, Christmas, Easter, New Year's Day, and many more for God's Holy Days. Because of this, man has lost sight of God's wonderful plan of Salvation and man's true destiny!

The Okmulgee Service League will hold their annual Easter Egg Hunt Saturday, April 4 at 10 a.m. at the Okmulgee Municipal Park next to the YMCA.

There will be three age groups 2-4 years, 5-7 years, and 8-10 years old.

This event is held in conjunction with the “Healthy Kids Day” at the YMCA.
