The Great American Clean Up (Trash Off) is once again coming to Perkins. The event will be held Saturday, March 26, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
All volunteers will meet at The Lions Den , 110 S. Main St., in Downtown Perkins at 8 a.m. for Breakfast, before going out into the community in groups to pick up trash. We will conclude around 11:30/12:00, or as areas are finished up!
This is a great community service activity for students needing community service hours.
Groups will be given gloves, vests, and trash bags - all provided by ODOT - and will be sent out to pick up trash along the highways, and throughout the parks.
THE MORE VOLUNTEERS WE HAVE, THE MORE WE CAN ACCOMPLISH!
Help us Clean Up Perkins on March 26th by picking up trash!
"Oklahoma's Spring Cleaning Event - In 2011, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation's Trash-Off became Oklahoma's signature event in the Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program, held annually from March 1 - May 31. Each spring, the ODOT Trash-Off brings together thousands of volunteers who are dedicated to making Oklahoma cleaner, greener and more beautiful."
The event, sponsored by the Perkins Community Chamber of Commerce, usually draws hundreds of treasure hunters to town. The Perkins Journal will print a garage sale map with locations of garage or yard sales in the March 30th issue. Listings on the garage sale map cost $10, which includes a classifieds page listing along with the map listing. Listings outside the city limits will also be included. The deadline to be listed in the paper is 1 p.m. Monday, March 28th, for garage sale listings in the special pullout section.

The Old Church Center, Vassar Community Center, Pistol Pete’s House, Railroad Museum, IXL School building, Tools of the Territory Barn, pavilions, playground and splash pad have been well used by individuals and community groups. That is made possible because you have supported the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza with your donations and participation in the fundraising dinner and auction.

37th Annual Monster Mash Drive-Through Trunk-or-Treat Event
Sponsored by the Perkins Community Chamber of Commerce
Date: Monday, October 31, 2022
Time: 5-7 p.m.
Details: Drive-Thru Event (please remain in your cars); Candy will be provided;
The Monster Mash was stared by the Perkins Chamber of Commerce in 1986 as a safe alternative to door-to-door trick-or-treating for children on Halloween. Historically this free event was held each year in the Elementary School Gym. In 2020, things changed, and we moved to a drive-through only Trunk-or-Treat event, with the Chamber and other businesses in town providing candy to kids as they drove by. After such a successful turnout the last two years, and due to the fact that we have simply outgrown the gym space, the trunk-or-treat style drive-through event will continue in 2022.
If your business would also like to participate by handing out your own bags of candy, you are more than welcome to! Just plan on being in place by 4:45pm on the 31st!
If you have any questions, please call the Chamber Office!

Children's Christmas Shoppe
This popular event, now in its 5th year, is geared towards children that would like to come in and buy a little Christmas gift for their mothers and fathers, grandparents, siblings, teachers, etc. The idea is that, with the help of donations from the Chamber and the Perkins community, there will be small, reasonably priced gifts that a child could come in, pick out, purchase, have wrapped, and then give as a gift.
Children between the ages of 3 and 12 will be able to purchase a gift for $1 - $3 with the help of a volunteer. Gifts will be wrapped by volunteers for a surprise on Christmas morning.
All children are welcome while supplies last.
Saturday, December 3rd
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
