Christmas Auction continues tradition instilled by Jaycees
People who have helped with the annual Christmas Auction found themselves returning Monday night, as the auction kicked off its 56th year.

Bikers make special delivery on Toy Run
A roar of engines and a long line of metallic shine ridden by figures decked out in leather signal the Toy Run each year.

Marlow, Velma postpone events due to weather
If you’ve been following the weather, you have seen the high likelihood of strong winter weather hitting the Stephens County area before the weekend.
Area parade organizers have been paying attention as well and, as a precaution, are moving this weekends events to future dates. Marlow’s parade and pancake breakfast will be moved to Dec. 14.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Even if your red and green decorations aren’t up yet, there are plenty of community happenings this month to get everyone in the Christmas spirit.
The Christmas Auction, formerly run by the Duncan Jaycees Club and this year taken over by the Duncan Rotary Club, will be from 6:30-10:30 p.m. each night today through Friday live on Duncan Channel 10 or at duncanauction.org. Proceeds go to clothe children in need in Duncan. Shopping day for the children will be Dec. 14.
