Oklahoma School for the Blind



SAPULPA, Okla. – The only thing better than hot beans, chili and cornbread is giving back to people who care about you, especially around the holidays. That’s why a dozen Oklahoma School for the Blind students are coming from Muskogee to Sapulpa on Thursday Febuary 1st, to volunteer at the Lions Club’s annual beans and chili dinner.

 OSB students will serve from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The Lions will cover the dinner shift from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The annual event, going on now for at least 40 years, will take place at the First Baptist Church cafeteria, 124 S. Elm.

  “Our students have been going out there [to Sapulpa] to make presentations, to ask the Lions for donations for things like out of state travel to compete in Braille Challenge,” Miller said. ““Any activities that they have, the Lions are just wonderful to support our students.” Now the community has a chance to help out too.

For only $8, bean and chili supper guests get all they can eat of everything on the menu: chili and four kinds of beans -- the number one seller pinto -- plus navy, lima (or butter) beans, and black eyed peas, and, of course, cornbread, cole slaw, tea, coffee, milk and buttermilk.

To buy tickets in advance or get more information, contact Wayne Neal at  or 918-695-8175.

Students from all over the state attend the Oklahoma School for the Blind, which offers a comprehensive curriculum meeting all state mandated education requirements plus specialized instruction in braille, orientation and mobility, optimum use of low vision, adaptive equipment and technology, and tactile graphic skills.
