Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —
The annual Angel Tree holiday campaign got off to a bit of a slow start thanks to some apparent confusion over the sign up times.
One thing that’s clear is the sign-ups to receive gifts will continue throughout the week at the Pauls Valley Public Library.
The scheduled times are:
• Tuesday, Nov. 5 — 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Wednesday, Nov. 6 — 5 to 7 p.m.
• Thursday, Nov. 7 — 10 a.m. to noon.
• Friday, Nov. 8 — 1 to 5 p.m.
The Angel Tree campaign is meant to help out low income families as Pauls Valley and Whitebead kids can get a couple of presents valued at $10 each.
Library officials stress anyone interested in getting signed up for the children to receive presents can come by the library and fill out an application during the listed times and days.
Anyone wanting to buy some gifts for the kids can pick up “angels” at the library anytime during regular hours.
On the back of each angel is the gender of the child, their age and two gift suggestions made by those filling out the applications.
Help can also come without picking up an angel as people can come to the library and donate money or drop off an unwrapped gift.
• The Wynnewood United Methodist Women will hold a community Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, Nov. 7.

• The Toy and Action Figure Museum will also honor this weekend the many female super folks who have had an impact on the world of comic books, movies and action figures.
