Shoe donations needed for band fundraiser

The Lindsay Band program wants your shoes! Old, new, mismatched…it doesn’t matter, ALL shoes are accepted!
The more shoes we can collect, the more money our band program will earn, according to band director, Shelby Lam
It’s a win-win-win…you get a little extra closet space, shoes are repurposed instead of going into a landfill, and your local band kids get the benefit of a great fundraiser!
Any shoes you’d like to donate can be dropped off at the Lindsay band room, located adjacent to the Leopard Arena.
Shoes will be accepted through December 16. Please contact Band Director, Shelby Lam, at ssanders@lindsay.k12.ok.us or (405) 756-3132 with questions.

‘Christmas at the Mansion’ set Dec. 4

“Come celebrate Christmas at the Murray-Lindsay Mansion this Sun., Dec. 4, from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.” That’s the word from Shawn Bridwell of the Lindsay Community Historical Society.
Visitors will be able to walk through the beautifully decorated historic Mansion. This special event has a lot of meaning for the Lindsay Community and represents a beautiful home where the families of the Murrays and the Lindsays enjoyed COMING to GRANDMA’S HOUSE. Both of the grandmas of this family gladly SHARED THEIR HOME with friends and families.
Photos with Santa (with a photographer) will be available on the third floor.
Visitors will also be treated to punch, cider, cookies, and snacks.
The Murray family moved in to the Mansion just in time for their first Christmas in December of 1881.
“Come step back in time with us this year, once again,” Mr.Bridwell added.
The Murray-Lindsay Mansion is located just south of Lindsay on Hwy. 76, then west about a mile at Erin Springs, at 13031 N. County Road 3025.
“Mark your calendars! We look forward to seeing you there,” Mr. Bridwell concluded.
