    Adoptable Pet of The Week

    Meet Mouse, from Pets and People!

    If you’re looking for a playful best friend to talk to, you’ve found the right guy. Mouse will always lend an sensitive ear and offer his own two cents in any conversation. It doesn’t matter to him who he pays with, as long as they enjoy a little rough-housing, too, though other cats, small calm dogs, and older children are best. Any toy will do, cat towers, cat toys, paper balls, even paper towel rolls! Mouse is a total “magnet cat”, meaning he’ll be right by your side – or curled in your lap. The perfect buddy is right there at Pets and People, waiting for you.

    All Pets & People cats and kittens – $85.00. This includes vaccinations, worming, feleuk check, microchip and spay/neuter.

    You can find out more about Mouse, or make plans to adopt him here, or contact Pet’s and People at (405) 350-7387.

    Exclusive Behind the Scenes at Earl’s Rib Palace in Yukon

    You can’t miss their new signs at 10 W. Main, or the excitement that Earl’s Rib Palace is building. Yukon’s Best.com has been given an exclusive look on the construction of the new restaurant. We spoke to the new general manager, Joel Lyons, for the inside story as well.

    “We acquired the property sometime in March or April,” says Lyons, “We’ve put a lot of time and money into making it great.” Earl’s is a Oklahoma-owned company started in Oklahoma City by a band of high school friends in 1996. Since then, they have grown to have five different locations in the metro, and are now adding their sixth in Yukon.

    “Earl’s really values community,” explains Lyons, on why they chose to move into 10 W. Main instead of extending down I-40. “Being on Main Street helps us stay active with the city.”

    Earl’s Rib Palace is set to open either at the end of August or early September. You can see pictures of the restaurant’s current state of progress below.

    Adoptable Pet of the Week

    Say hello to Strawberry, from Pets and People!

    Strawberry came to Pets and People when she was just a kitten, so she has never known any other home. The only life to her is life in a shelter, so as a result, she is very shy. Her demure disposition will need a patient home that’s willing to let her take her time adjusting. She would do well in a home with no kids, with another calm cat or small dog who is willing to “show her the ropes” of pet life.

    All Pets & People cats and kittens – $85.00. This includes vaccinations, worming, feleuk check, microchip and spay/neuter.

    You can find out more about Strawberry, or make plans to adopt her here, or contact Pet’s and People at (405) 350-7387.

    Welcome New Teachers!

    This morning, at 11:30 am, new teachers and other Yukon School workers arrived at 10 W. Main after their V.I.P. bus ride. They were greeted with great fanfare: music from the high school band and cheers from the high school cheerleaders.

    Out of the estimated 250 people attending the event, about 150 of them were Yukon Public School District new hires. Each new employee was given a “goodie bag” with supplies donated by Chamber members. Twenty-four volunteers filled each one of the bags in only 19 minutes.

    The new teacher luncheon is an uncommon practice among cities, and Yukon is proud to be one of the few to properly greet their new members. The event was started 25 years ago by Cherie Logan and Mike Little, a football coach, as a fish fry for his new coaches.

    The bowtie pasta with chicken, macaroni and cheese, rolls, and honey butter were provided by Interurban, the drinks by RCB Mortgage, and the dessert cookies were by Sam’s Club.

    Other sponsors include Goose’s Garage, Arvest Bank, Bancfist, Integris Canadian Valley Hospital, Mathnasium, YNB, United Pharmacy, Physical Therapy Central, Joe Cooper Ford, Spanish Cove, American Eagle Title Group, True Sky, TFCU, Jay Steagall, Rhonda Baker, Yanda and Son Funeral Home, Interbank, Stitch Designs Inc., Downing Chiropractic, The UPS Store, Yukon Flowers and Gifts, Covenant Community Church, and 10 West Main Events.

    Coffee Chronicles – 8/2/19

    Yukon Public Schools hosted Friday coffee at the Administration Building this morning. The massive crowd was treated to Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, assorted pastries, cake and cookies and lots of water, orange juice and coffee.

    Dr Jason Simeroth welcomed the crowd excited about the new school year beginning in a couple of weeks. He said there is a good possibility enrollment will exceed 9,000 this year. The school system supplies strong economic support for our city.

    Construction on Red Stone Intermediate School is well under way and expected to be completed by August 2020.

    Ken Smith asked everyone to life up Larry Taylor. He had 2 rods placed in his back this past week. He will be in the hospital, then in rehab.

    Pam Shelton, New Teacher Luncheon Tuesday August 6. If you want to donate something for the goody bags, get 150 items to the Chamber office.

    Yukon Public Schools All School Employee Breakfast, otherwise known as “The Breakfast” is scheduled for Monday, August 12. Call Community Education if you want to sponsor a table to welcome and honor all the people who make education possible in Yukon.

    Next Coffee Southwest Covenant Schools. Come be with us!
