Cruisin', Weekends & Wine
Feeding Our Neighbors
Feeding Our Neighbors, on the Loaves & Fishes building at 701 E Maine, was completed in June 2020. Artists are Kelly & Ty Tompkins of Hive Appeal.
From the Hive Appeal website:
This mural at our local food pantry is a welcoming reminder of the fresh produce they provide to hungry families. It was also a surprise tribute to Gail Wynne, tireless volunteer and Founding Mother of Loaves & Fishes. It features produce they have grown for clients, her favorite flower (hydrangea), her hand holding radishes, and her family's brand in the center of the watermelon swirls. Her family brand was originally drawn by her late father, Oklahoma Governor Henry Bellmon. Since a generous funder paid for the mural, we turned the 33 colors into a $3,300 fundraiser to help them feed more people during this time of additional need.
Van Buren Cruisers
VanBuren a.k.a VB was a place where you could find all the teens of Enid back in the day. It was where you found new friends and hung out with old ones. Others would come from all the other smaller towns to cruise too. Those were the days! This is a group to reconnect with all the many that used to cruise VB in Enid.
This marks 12 years that we have been reliving the good ol’ days and cruising up and down our favorite drag VB!! Over those 12 years we have reunited with past friends and met some new ones. Our community has come together to celebrate fellowship through a favorite pastime.
Roll in to the Van Buren Cruisers Cruise Night on Friday & Saturday for cruising up and down the streets of Enid. Join other car enthusiasts as they show off their cars to crowds of visitors who bring lawn chairs and blankets and line VB to watch all the vehicles cruise by.
And don't miss the Van Buren Cruisers Car Show on Saturday 5-8 pm at Central Christian Church. It's your chance to see several of the vehicles cruising VB up close.
