Due to the record low temperature weather, the 2013 Spring Spring Fling sponsored by KOKL Radio station closed early on Saturday and will be rescheduled tentatively for June 1.

Many venders and other scheduled events were forced to cancel due to the rain.  The good news is they will all be back and better than ever for the second scheduling, according to event coordinator Kelley Love.  

“Hopefully the weather will cooperate and be just right for the event,” said Love. “The whole idea is to get people downtown, active and enjoy a family fun packed day.”

Stay tuned to KOKL Radio station and Okmulgee News Network for details on the new date and plans for the Spring Fling Event.

St. Anthony’s Church in Okmulgee held a special service Saturday evening in honor of the 100 years of service by Council 1677 of the Knights of Columbus.   Bishop Edward James Slattery of Tulsa presided the Celebration of the Mass overseeing several youth that day as they took their right of confirmation.

The event was quite impressive with the Knights of Columbus in uniformed regalia.  After the Mass the affair was continued at the Okmulgee Country Club for an anniversary dinner, entertainment and presentation of awards.

Guests enjoyed a superb prime rib dinner followed by Jim Martin giving the welcome and introductions.  He recounted a myriad of events that have transpired over the past 100 years, from political events to the price of gas and marking the moment in 1954 when the Knights of Columbus campaigned to have “Under God” added to the Pledge of Allegiance making the pledge both a patriotic oath and a public prayer.

Attendees took a step back in time as an Elvis impersonator performed for them.  Awards were then given to the following:  Jim Vaughn for Life/Honorary membership, Jim O'Neil Knight of the Year, Brian Thomason Family for Family of the Year and Art Porter received a personal thank you for all he has done for the church and the council.

Rev. James Caldwell gave the closing prayer.

Similar to previous years, 168 seconds of silence will be observed at 9:02 a.m., when a truck bomb detonated outside the federal building. The names of those killed will be read by family members and survivors.
