Oklahoma Territorial Plaza Fundraising Dinner and Auction
Saturday, October 23, 2021.
6:30pm at Oak Park Retreat Center
This is the only fundraising event for the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza Park.
It’s the time of year to support the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza in Perkins! The annual fundraising dinner and auction will be held in the Dickerson Building at Oak Park in Perkins on October 23, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. The dinner is the only fund raising event for the Plaza. The funds are used to maintain the plaza throughout the year. Have you noticed the new paint on the Old Church Center and the IXL School building; the way the Plaza grounds are always clean and mowed; the large number of citizens who use the Old Church Center, Vassar Community Center, pavilions, playground and splash pad? All of that activity is because you have supported the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza with your donations and participation in the fundraising dinner and auction in the past. We are asking for your help again. Our goal is $30,000.
Many of the past attendees at the dinner and auction have requested that we hold the dinner at an air-conditioned site. The Perkins-Tryon Junior High Gym is not air-conditioned but has seated 252 people at 32 tables. The Oak Park Dickerson Building is an air-conditioned venue we are using again year and it can accommodate 200 people at 25 tables. We need your help to reach our goal of $30,000 to continue to maintain and develop the plaza and establish an endowment fund for the future. However, we have a limited number of tickets to sell this year because of the change of venue. Please request your tickets as soon as possible so you won’t be disappointed at not being able to get a ticket. You can help in a number of ways and we urge you to immediately return the form at the bottom of this page to help us with this year’s fundraising effort. Thank you!
Oklahoma Territorial Plaza Fundraising Dinner and Auction Committee: Judy Bartram, Lisa Bromley, Tiffani DeArmond, Bob Ernst, Eric Lovelace, Lisa Tanner, Judy Moorman, Virginia Sasser, and Darla Woody
The official letter will be sent out later in the year. Please check back for more information as the event approaches.
36th Annual Monster Mash Drive-Through Trunk-or-Treat Event
Sponsored by the Perkins Community Chamber of Commerce
Date: Sunday, October 31, 2021
Time: 5-7 p.m.
Place: Oklahoma Territorial Plaza Park
Details: Drive-Thru Event (please remain in your cars); Candy will be provided; Enter the park at the entrance by the splash pad (off of Kinder-Wells), Exit by Perkins Drug (one way traffic only).
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 last year, and due to the fact that we have simply outgrown the gym space, the trunk-or-treat style drive-through event will continue in 2021.
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 4th 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 04
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
