The Home Representative Club is using pink flamingos to raise money for their club. This money will assist the Home Representative Club projects which include the Collinsville Senior Tea, Patriotism Contest, HOBY Award, Scholarship Fund, Project Helmet which is a new project that provides safety kits and new helmets for Collinsville soldiers, etc.

The birds may land in your yard as a resting place. These birds have agreed to “fly elsewhere” to the yard of your choice for a $10.00 donation. To guarantee the flamingos do not return to your yard during the 2006 migrating season you may donate $20.00 and your yard will be secure. Your $20.00 donation will also give you the privilege of sending the birds to the yard of your choice.

The Home Representative Club appreciates all the support they have received thus far. If you would like to participate or would like just to make a donation, please call Carolyn Brinkley at 371-3589.
An addition to our happenings at the Collinsville Library on November 16th. Susan Babbitt 630-8832
Dee Sallee will be signing her cookbook, Dee's Treasured Recipes and Family Memories, from 1:00-2:30 during the Collinsville Library Centennial Celebration on November 16th. After many years of gathering data and information it seemed fitting and proper to Dee that she complete the cookbook and history for the Centennial year. Her cookbook and memoir includes more than 250 favorite recipes from her mother, Salwa Bayouth's traditional Lebanese to American dishes and other favorites from her family, friends, and restaurants. Her father Sol H. Bayouth came to America in 1903 at the age of 15. The memories and stories from Sol and other family members make this a true Centennial treasure. A cookbook signing isn't complete without samples so be sure to visit with Dee, peruse her book, and taste a Lebanese treat.

On November 16th the Collinsville Library will celebrate Oklahoma's 99th Birthday with cake, speakers, music and stories.

We will open at 8am with coffee and apple pan dowdy... for the early risers... lots to see and stories to tell. Mother Goose is coming for the children at 10:00 If any of you had Mrs. Morrow as a teacher you will enjoy visiting with her granddaughter at 1:30. .... a few quilts on display...Visit with Mirian the Librarian through out the day. 5pm author Sally Jadlow. 6:30 author Carol Johnson.
