|All Thumbs Knitters (June Meeting)|

|Due to the current
Smithsonian Exhibit at the Collinsville Library, the June 20 meeting for
the All Thumbs Knitters was held at the Owasso Library . Local business
woman and fellow knitter Debbie Norton joined the group, and announced
plans are underway for her proposed yarn store in the Owasso area - music
to the ears of area knitters!
Several members were present and enjoyed a huge yarn giveaway (also called "stash cleaning!"). Door prizes were quilted needle pouches with zippered pockets. Several Show and Tell items were displayed, and knitted blankets were donated to Newborns In Need. Printed instructions were distributed, showing an invisible method of increasing a stitch.
The next meeting will also be at the Owasso Library, on Thursday, July 5, 1 - 3 PM.

|Former Resident On Oregon Radio / 62-63 CHS Reunion|
|Ted, This is just
a bit of news for residents of Collinsville. My son Shannon Heaps (Chris
Kelly) had worked for Cox Radio for over 20 years. He is a graduate of
Collinsville High School. Recently he moved to Portland, Oregon to be
the Program Director for "The Fish", a Christian Radio Station.
His family will follow him soon and we all miss him but; are very grateful
for his talent and the opportunity he has been given. The technology we
have enables us to "Skype" so we talk often.
Also I would like
to report that the classes of 1962 and 1963 are having a class reunion
July 7 and 8. We are meeting at The Post Oak Lodge. If anyone was not
contacted, the can call Delbert Heaps at 918-371-2408.
Thanks, Wanda Heaps
