Local food bank seeks volunteers to help sort food for hungry Oklahomans

OKLAHOMA CITY – A local food bank is seeking volunteers to help feed hungry Oklahomans.

The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma seeks hundreds of volunteers to help sort canned food donations from the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive on Saturday, May 10 at metro-area post office sites.

“More than 500 volunteers are needed to help sort food donations we will receive in the metro-area on May 10,” said Denice Hurlbut, associate director of volunteerism at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.  “By sorting the food on site as the letter carriers bring it in from their routes, we can get it into the homes of those who need it that much faster.”

As part of the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive, residents in more than 120 cities in central and western Oklahoma are encouraged to fill a plastic bag with canned food donations and leave it next to their mailbox on Saturday, May 10th. Letter Carriers will deliver the donation bags the week of May 5th.

Local university to honor OKC bombing anniversary with flags

EDMOND, Okla. – Oklahomans are gathering together to mark the 19th anniversary of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing.

At 6:00 a.m. on Friday, April 18, student and staff volunteers will post 168 Oklahoma flags and 168 U.S. flags on the front lawn of the Oklahoma Christian University (OC) campus at 2501 East Memorial Road.

The “Ralph and Maxine Harvey Field of Flags” at Oklahoma Christian is a dual tribute to the victims of the Murrah Federal Building bombing on April 19, 1995, and the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

The hope is that each person who sees the memorial tribute will take a moment to remember the 168 lives lost on that dreadful day.

Great State: The Duke’s Grandaughter and Joel McRea’s Grandson Glad to Share Memories at Cowboy Museum

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA — He called her ‘Sweetheart’ or ‘Honey’.

She called him ‘Grandaddy’.

If Anita La Cava Swift is dancing through this section of the Western Performers Hall at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum it’s because that’s what she used to do through John Wayne’s office or on his movie sets.

Speaking of herself and the Duke’s 26 other grandchildren, Anita says, “We got to do a lot of things that not a lot of people did. We were lucky.”

Everything in one long glass case, especially the saddles, a hand-made desk, and a set of bronze sculptures are items she grew up as the oldest grandchild of a Hollywood icon.

She identifies one more item. “The Kachina doll collection I really recognize because, in his library, he had them displayed all across,” she says.
