Bike MS is fast approaching for Sep 24-25th when hundreds of riders will be making their way from Norman, spend the night in Guthrie and then on to Stillwater the following day. We are always looking for volunteers either day and I am pretty sure Tom can hook you up if you are interested.
If you are on facebook, our Blooms and Grooms folks have started a page and it is a good place to keep up with different pharmaceutical programs and activities.
