Week of October 23

There are lots of events happening in Barnsdall this week, as we close out the month of October.

The junior high football team played its last game of the season against Pawnee on Monday. The boys will now start practice to begin the athletic seasons of basketball and wrestling. These two sports will have their first game or match at the end of November.

Saturday is a busy day in Barnsdall. There have been twenty-one tables reserved for the annual Barnsdall Citizen Craft Fair. The fair will consist of fall and Christmas crafts, antiques and collectibles to purchase. Steve Overacker and friends will provide live entertainment. Sandra Cox will provide fall craft classes for a small fee to pay for the craft supplies.

The BCI will provide concessions for the event to include homemade cinnamon rolls and walking tacos. The fair is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the front yard of the Community Center. There is still time to reserve a table at no cost. Call 918-847-2371 to reserve one today.
