A citizen's group (dubbed the Magnificant 7 by chairman Susan Babbitt) has been meeting occasionally since 2004 to make recommendations to the city on how to best spend the city's Vision 2025 allocation for beautification and community improvement. Two major recommendations from the group led to the TEA-21 project for two blocks of Main and a concept plan for future park improvements. The group met again Tuesday March 28th, 2006, to discuss 3 topics: a replacement building in the park for the former Kiwanis hut; confirmation of interest in utilizing the Diane Woodruff dome in a Collinsville project (as the Tulsa Historical Society has also expressed an interest); confirmation of interest in utilizing a potential sculpture donation by former resident Wade Nachtigall.
2006 CHS Grad Page Status
I know it is hard to believe it is almost graduation time for these kids, and everyone is busy, but you can really enhance their pages by sending a favorite photo or two to add to those in my archive. I still have some kids with no photos so far. I plan to have the initial pages online by the end of April. Email photos to or send to CHS (to Mrs. Bowman) to have photos scanned and returned. -- Ted 3/29/06
