A tradition is returning to a Garvin County facility next week to give a salute and a thank you to any and all military veterans.
All staff working in the Garvin County Courthouse in Pauls Valley are inviting veterans to an appreciation lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Canceled last year because of the virus pandemic, the luncheon to honor the upcoming observation of Veterans Day will be the main lobby on the ground floor of the courthouse.
Beaty Baptist Church is bringing back its fall festival and inviting the public to come on in for some good old fashioned community fun.
The festival is set to go from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7.
The event will feature all kinds of food, a chili cook-off, games and fun activities for the kids.
The church, located southwest of Pauls Valley on Airline Road holds the festival simply to “reach out to the community.”
Instead of its regular First Tuesday luncheon the Antioch Community Association and the Antioch ABC-OHCE will together host a traditional Thanksgiving family dinner at the Antioch School building.
The event is set to begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13.
All friends, neighbors, relatives and families of Antioch are invited to come bring their favorite side dishes, salads and desserts. Turkey, ham and dressing will be furnished.
