Programs & Field Trips for 2020
Meetings for March and April have been cancelled due to the current crisis. If the Coronavirus outbreak subsides, we may change the plan for April.
Our Annual Spring Festival has also been cancelled, given the orders forbidding assembly of large groups of people. We look forward to our Festival again next year.

YARD OF THE MONTH
Yard of the Month
This September, Mike and Leslie Peterson, residents of Barrington Pointe off 129th E Ave, were recognized by the Owasso Bouquet of Gardeners for their efforts in beautifying their landscape. Their home has a blend of flower beds, decorations and water features. Their plants include sunpatiens, cannas, hydrangeas, and hibiscuses. Their colorful flowers surround an assortment of bird ornaments and fountains throughout. The Petersons were surprised and happy to be honored with this recognition.
