Dorman lays out legislative plans for end of year

(Continued)

CHICKASHA —

On Thursday evening, I will host an event to help collect signatures for Take Shelter Oklahoma.  The organization has put together a storm shelter fair for persons to learn more about how important it is to have one in not only your school, but also your home or at work.  Several vendors will be present to answer questions about storm shelters.  Each will be competing in a chili cook-off, so you will also be able to get a great bowl of chili on what is expected to be a cold night, and there will also be plenty of entertainment with a live band and karaoke on the breaks.  The event will be at the OKC Farmer’s Market at 311 S Klein Ave in Oklahoma City from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.   You will also be able to register to vote if you are not signed up as only registered voters are allowed to sign the petition.   If you have not had the opportunity to sign the petition, this will be a great time to stop by and help us get to our goal before the deadline in two weeks.  If you have sheets and need to get them back to us, you can drop them off that evening, or you can mail them to P.O. Box 2299 in Oklahoma City, OK 73101.

Recently, I had the pleasure to address the retirement dinner for the Lawton Firefighters, along with their graduation for the newest class of recruits.  This class includes the very first female professional firefighter in their ranks.  Both Apache and Anadarko are excelling in high school football and I want to wish these teams from our area a safe and successful remainder of the playoffs, along with the players for the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University as they face each other this weekend in Bedlam.  I am also looking forward to a Lupus Awareness event on Saturday night.
