MUSEUM HAPPENINGS

The museum is open, and we have the appropriate practices in place to keep everyone safe. We also hope everyone is practicing common-sense safety measures. Due to the pandemic, our activities are greatly reduced, so I have no news on our activities.

HISTORICAL MUSING

One of the first ranches in this area was established by H.W. Cresswell.

Hanes and Betts take Rotary to the beach

Body
Curt McPherson hosted Lacy Hanes and Meagan Betts of Canadian River Beach Club as our program. Lacy gave a brief background on the CRBC, stating that a loose CRBC started in 2008 with a chili cook-off to help raise money for state football rings. Then, in the fall of 2009, John Julian, L.H. Webb, and Doug Benge had approaching birthdays. Instead of having a private party, they decided to have a communitywide calf fry to celebrate and give back to Canadian. That year, they had 28 teams and raised $2,000 for the Ministerial Alliance, establishing the annual Calf Fry Cook-off as we now know it.

Break O'Day Farm & Metcalfe Museum | Durham, Oklahoma

Body
I have been asked a lot of questions about George Davidson. This uncle of Augusta’s is such an interesting man and there is always plenty of information about him. I have always been interested in the history of the ships named after him. I found this information about the second Davidson ship but would like to know more about Davidson one.

To continue summer fun, Canadian entertainment adapts

Body
It has been months of quarantine for many of us, and the urge to get out of the house and enjoy the warmer weather is palpable. Summer during COVID-19 isn’t quite the same as years past, but that doesn’t mean summer 2020 has to be a bummer. There are still many family-friendly activities in Canadian to be enjoyed this season.
