Shop Barnsdall at the holidays, help local businesses

Misty Farber

Week of Nov. 4-10

It’s that time of year: Start shopping and gather as many tickets as you can from Barnsdall merchants to enter the Chamber of Commerce Christmas drawing on Dec. 12. Any Barnsdall business that is a member of the Chamber will be giving out one ticket per $10 you spend at their location. Shop local to help Barnsdall and reward yourself with tickets for a chance at winning a cash prize.   

American Legion Post 227 will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5, for their regularly scheduled monthly meeting. All American Legion meetings are held downtown at the American Legion Building.

The Legion Post is participating in a fundraiser, selling tickets for the New 10 Gun Drawing. Ten tickets will be drawn for a chance to win 10 different guns. The drawing will take place at the Department of Oklahoma Midwinter Conference on Jan. 22. Tickets are $10 each with $5 from each ticket staying with our local Barnsdall Post 227. Contact Claud Rosendale at 1-918-724-2240 or stop by B&B Lumber to purchase a ticket. These tickets would be great stocking stuffers. Please support our local Post 227 and buy a ticket. 

The Barnsdall Chamber of Commerce meets next week at noon Tuesday, Nov. 10, for its regular monthly meeting. The Chamber will be finalizing the Christmas in Barnsdall event and reporting on the Halloween event held last week. Lunch will be served for $5, and a detailed agenda will be emailed later this week. 

Barnsdall Citizens Inc. will hold its monthly meeting following the Chamber meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 1:15 p.m.
