NORMAN — Veterans Day at Noble High School

Noble High School plans a Veterans Day assembly to honor Noble veterans and their families.

The program will be at on 9 a.m. Monday in the gym.

The student council also will welcome the Blue Star Moms — a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to support military sons and daughters through service.

Caitlin Collett, high school secretary, said attendees are encouraged to bring items to donate to deployed troops including, beef jerky, trail mix, powdered drink packets, toothbrushes, deodorant, socks, dried fruits, crossword puzzles, wet wipes or other pre-packaged necessities for the Blue Star Moms to send to troops.

After the assembly, the school will host a reception for veterans and their families.

The event is open to the public.

Information, call the school at 405-872-3441.

Group sets last show of year

The Oklahoma Travelers song troupe’s last performance of the year will be Friday, Dec. 7.

Reports that the group would perform this evening were incorrect.

Because of the holidays, there are no more gospel music evenings planned and only one more country music evening on tap, group member Joyce Swanson said.

“We will only have one more performance this year,” Swanson said. “It will be Dec. 7. We won’t have any more gospel nights because of the holidays falling in those weeks.”

That last performance will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 7 at the senior center at the southeast corner of State Highway 77 and Maguire Road.

“Singers are welcome to join in,” Swanson said.

Visitors are asked to bring finger foods to share while enjoying the music, she said.

After the first of the year, the Oklahoma Travelers will return to their performance schedule of the first and third Fridays of the month at the Noble senior center.
