Proceeds from our 50/50 Raffle at the Indian Nations Rally will benefit a unique piece of Oklahoma history.
Back in February we told you about club member John Moore’s adventures in the Passport Oklahoma 2013. The Passport is a year-long photo rally sponsored by K & N Yamaha. There are “checkpoints” located all around the state of Oklahoma where you snap a pic of you and/or your bike. The idea is you have all year to visit these far flung places. John, being your above-average BMW rider, visited them all in just two weekends.
One of the stops was in the tiny town of Snow in southeastern Oklahoma. The rally instructions simply said “Snow School,” which appeared to be next door to the post office. Which was about all there is in Snow, OK. Trouble is there is no sign that actually says “Snow School.”
John visited with Frances Creel, the local postmaster, to confirm he was snapping pictures of the correct building. She told him it was indeed the school building- even though it didn’t actually say so. Turns out the school building in Snow was built by the WPA in the late Thirties and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. Unfortunately the community could never afford the plaque typically found on structures listed on the Register.
Seeing a worthwhile need John suggested to the club that we help the Snow School obtain their commemorative plaque. So this June a portion of the proceeds from our 50/50 Raffle will be donated to the Pushmataha County Historical Society to purchase a plaque for the Snow School.
It may not be a huge deal, but it is one way our club can benefit a unique piece of Oklahoma history.
Now you can help. And you might win half the pot!
Raffle tickets are only $5.00 each and you need not be present to win.
