August is another of our fun months with our ice cream social.  This is a family and kid friendly afternoon of making your own sundae.  If you have a favorite or unusual topping bring it along.

ATOMS Special Event

Stephanie has checked into a charter boat ride on the OK River for Sep 20th from 4-6 PM.  To do this would require 35 people at $22 per person.  If we have enough interest we would need to pay at the Aug meeting so that we can reserve the boat.  Those of us who took the ride slightly shorter ride last month, we had a great time!
