Celebrations Around Us
Who does not love to celebrate? We celebrate birthdays, weddings, graduations and other special events. We throw parties, barbeque, gather with friends and build memories. Who says we have to wait for an event, though? We have so much to celebrate around us every day. Here are some things SMTO is celebrating this month.
Celebrating Who We Are. The 151st Quapaw Powwow begins July 1 and provides four nights jam-packed with a wide range of activities. Quapaw Powwow is an opportunity for this tribe of Native Americans to connect the past to the present and preserve a rich history. However, this event is not just for Native Americans; it is for all men, women and children to honor the past by celebrating the present. The Quapaw Powwow is an event that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Celebrating Our People. Every morning and evening, our local television personalities celebrate our community. With their whit, banter or calm delivery of vital information, the television personalities found within this issue are committed to delivering what is happening in our communities. Some might have been on air for over 50 years and others are just starting their journey, but all are faces we welcome in our homes every day. Thank you for all you do!
Celebrating Small Communities. There is nothing better than coming from a small town, with its familiar faces, strong history and the security of the well-known. This month, we celebrate Carl Junction. This town is small, but its heart is mighty. CJ celebrates big and serves each other even bigger. We feature teachers, small businesses, community members, athletes and more this month. See what makes Carl Junction so special!
Celebrating Love. The biggest celebration of love is the wedding day. The wedding day marks the first day of the rest of your life as a couple. In this issue, we provide you with all the information you need to make your start of happily-ever-after live up to your biggest, wildest dreams. We provide you with tips, information, venues, services and more to make your special day one in a million. After all, your happiness is our happiness!
Celebrating My Rock. June 30 is the fifth wedding anniversary to the love of my life, Scott. After 60 months, 260 weeks and 1,825 days, our love story is still my favorite. You are my best friend, my true partner. You are always by my side and support all my dreams, whether that is professionally, with our family or in any pursuit of adventure. Thank you for making these past five years amazing. I love you and cannot wait to spend another five years with you!
Don’t forget, in all of your celebrations, shop local. There is no better way to celebrate our community than by supporting locally owned businesses.
