Spring has finally arrived at the Fred Drummond Home and the grounds are truly a beautiful sight to see. The Petunias and Irises are in full bloom and just this week we got the very first LOIS HOPE ROSE on the two new rose bushes planted this year. We are so excited that a part of the late Addie Drummond’s Rose bush still lives on! Take time and come on down and take a look!

The next Friends Meeting will be held Thursday, May 22nd starting at 7 p.m. at the Drummond home. We would like to invite all to come and participate and to be a part of preserving a big part of our Hominy history!

We are open to the public Wednesday through Saturdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. with tours being given between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. with the last tour starting at 4 p.m. A small admission charge is taken at the door of $3 for adults, $2.50 for Seniors (65+) Children 6 to 18 yrs - $1 and Children under 6 yrs-free.

For information, call 918-885-2374.

Recipe of the week:


4 cups of flour

4 teaspoons of baking powder

1 ½ to 2 cups of Dandelions (YELLOW PETALS ONLY!)

½ cup oil

¾ cup Honey

2 eggs

2 2/3 cups of milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large blow, mix all ingredients together and pour into two bread pans sprayed with cooking spray and bake until toothpick inserted in the middle of each comes out clean. This is NOT a very sweet bread, but is really delicious with butter and or jam spread.

*NOTE: When gathering your Dandelions, be sure to pick them where you know there have been no chemicals sprayed on or near ground. Your own yard is probably the safest place. Wash them well before adding them to your bread mixture!!
