Bristow, Ok August, 08 ( The Oklahoma Post) –

The Artisans and Gardeners Market of Bristow, Oklahoma hosted its second annual Touch-A-
Truck Kids Day Event on August 6, 2022 from 9:09 a.m. to 11 a.m.

This free community event offered free school supplies and toothbrushes to all, eighteen trucks
to touch and tour, and over twenty vendors with handmade, homemade, and homegrown items.
All school supply donations were from the community. A true outpouring of love, cash,
community, and gift cards funded two pickup beds full of supplies. Cheyenne Dunbar of Spirit
Bank and Rotary Club of Bristow reported “We gave away the fifty-five donated backpacks
within the first twelve minutes of the school supply line.” Our amazing volunteers from Spirit
Bank and Rotary Club helped families bag their supplies for over an hour and a half before the
line of friends ended.

During this car show of sorts, the Touch-A-Truck Kids Day Event welcomed over eighteen local
businesses, individuals, and first responders to show off their “trucks” and allow people to tour
them. The horn honking, engine revving, and fun went on for hours as families posed for pictures with rigs both big and small. We heard many compliments from children and adults alike, “I loved honking the big horns for a long time.”, “This is the best day ever!”, and “My grandson is still thanking me for taking him.”.

As Phyllis Mahoney said “I like that it was a true homemade craft show!!!” This high praise is
exactly what the vision is for this market, truly homemade and truly a community. What better way to bring everyone together than to spotlight local business owners, local producers, local artists, local kids, and really cool local trucks!?

A huge thank you goes to our Boy Scout Troop 571 who arranged the parking of the trucks. This
event could not have happened without their help. To help the Boy Scouts, sign up for their
yearly fundraiser, the Boy Scout Flag Subscription which is currently taking more members.

Please contact Amos Ingram by phone at (918) 605-0768 to become a Flag Subscription
Member for an American flag to be placed at your home or business for patriotic holidays. You
can also contact Mr. Ingram about membership to the troop that meets on Monday at 6:31 p.m.
at the First Church of God on Walnut.

The Market would also like to thank the Rotary Club of Bristow volunteers as well as the team at
Spirit Bank that made this school supply distribution possible. Your many hands made for light work, and we thank you so much for your time and energy in the planning, delivery, and sharing of the supplies.

This event is why Bristow is a great place to live and raise a family. This is why Bristow is a
great place to grow a business or share your craft. People come together to help others and
encourage them. Thank you volunteers. Thank you vendors! Thank you to everyone who
donated time, money, and a kind word. Thank you, Bristow!
