Tickets are $25 in advance or $20 for seniors over 65 by going online http://www.cimarronbreeze.com or by calling Monica Taylor at (405) 612-3183. Tickets for all 6 shows are $140, and can purchased Saturday night or online, or at Old Station Monuments on west Highway 33 west of Perkins, at Daddy O's Music in Stillwater, or at Waltman Realty in Cushing. A really fun time will be had with this super group of mountain and bluegrass music. "We are thrilled that they are coming to Perkins," said Monica Taylor. "The leader of the band, Thomas Sneed, plays with me when I tour in the upper Rockies and I guarantee a great night of music. You will not be able to keep from tapping your toes and maybe even getting up to clog a few tunes!" Taylor added, "Don't forget the wonderful time we always have at the potluck dinner open to all concert goers starting about 6:15 p.m. Bring a dish or just a hungry belly!" and install the sirens and about $4,500 to help upgrade his trailer. Lester showcased the trailer recently during an emergency response disaster fair at the Payne County Fairgrounds. "It was the first year that we participated in it," Lester said. "It was worth going to. A lot of people were impressed with the trailer and were surprised that Perkins had it." Ernst said the Perkins Fire Department plans to use some of the sales tax money to purchase bunker gear and the Police Department plans to replace two vehicles next year. "Next year the police department is going to purchase two new vehi- cles and replace the two oldest ones we have in the fleet," he said. "They are also going to purchase patrol rifles for cars." Ernst said the City wouldn't be able to replace or purchase equip- ment as quickly without the public safety sales tax revenue. "It has been a real blessing for the City," he said. "A lot of these items are big-ticket items and things we really need." THE JOURNAL II II ,I I ,r, rl, r ,'l,I ,I I ,llllr PIIllr'~IM "l| IlIP
