Christmas Party

Hello to all!

We have a slight, well OK, a major change with the plans for our Christmas party. Thanks to Jesse Martinez for letting me know, the Delta Café is closing this Wednesday permanently. I called and confirmed this with the restaurant. So, we will not be having our party at Delta on Saturday.

Thanks to our members Charley and Ruthie Tipps for graciously offering their home for our party on such short notice. (Ruthie doesn’t even get to be there to enjoy it with us…) We will be ordering pizza and each person will need to pay $6 each to cover the cost of the pizza and drinks.

Charley’s address is 7522 E 53rd Place in Tulsa.

We will be playing the Dirty Santa game or gift exchange game. Each person who wants to play the game will need to bring a wrapped gift appropriate for either a guy or girl (not one or the other) at a cost of no more than $10. We will be playing other games as well, but you will have to come to the party to find out what they are! 

The date of the party has not changed, it will be this Saturday, December 9. Times for the party have not changed. We will begin at 1 pm and go no later than 4 pm.

If you have questions, please call or email me at the info below.

See everyone there!

Hello to all!

This is to remind you of our November TCB meeting, which will be next Thursday, November 9. We will be meeting at the usual place at the usual time, Delta Café located at 11101 E 41st Street in tulsa from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. If you want to come to the meeting but are not planning to eat with us before the meeting begins, you can come at 6 pm.

We will be having a guest speaker who will talk to us about Tulsa history, Gayle Campbell. Below is her bio:

I am a native Tulsan and have always been interested in Tulsa history. I have a wonderful husband, Jim, with whom I share many different interests.  I have two daughters who live in Tulsa, and a son who lives in London.  I also have a grandson and a granddaughter here in Tulsa.  

I've been a member of FBC Tulsa for 44 years, and have co-ordinated the Deaf and now the Deaf/Blind Ministry there for the last 26 years.  I entered the interpreting profession in 1991, and became a Deaf Ed teacher at Edison in 2002, and retired from there 4 years ago.  It's also my alma mater, and my grandson is now a freshman there.  

Our hobbies include genealogy and travel, and we particularly like to combine those two interests in one trip, visiting archives and cemeteries while seeing the sights.  When I retired I started a book club and became a volunteer at the Tulsa Historical Society and Museum.  I also used my retirement time to take up a completely new hobby, which is acting in "The Drunkard and the Olio" at the historic Spotlight Theater.  I'm a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Camp Fire Boys and Girls, and Tulsa Cherokee Community Organization. 

I think she will have some very interesting information to tell us, so plan to be there!

Also, please remember that we will be voting on the TCB Board for the 2018 year. To be able to vote, you must have your TCB dues paid by the start of the meeting. Dues are $12 per person. If you are interested in being on the board, you can be nominated during the proceedings.

Be looking for an agenda to follow soon!

Hope to see you all there!
