Holiday in the Park kickstarts recruitment efforts

LAWTON, Okla._Even though it's August, the organizers of Lawton's Holiday in the Park display want you to be thinking about Christmas.

Thursday, they welcomed donors and volunteers back to city hall to thank them for their efforts, and to kickstart the recruitment of more people for this year's event. New chairman Michael Tenis says it will require community-wide support in order to take the display to the next level.

"Fundraising and expanding what we're doing now is the main goal. That way, we can attract people from out of town to come enjoy the park during the holidays. So, my main focus is growing what we already have, and making it more appealing," said Tenis.

If you'd like to donate to the Holiday in the Park, and help reach the goal of making it the best Christmas display in the area, you can mail your donations to P.O. box 3714, Lawton, OK, 73502 or you can call 580-250-6729.

    Several crews responded to a series of fires along Highway 7 near the Comanche/Stephens County line.  Crews still have not determined how they started, but they suspect the fires were ignited by a vehicle that could have been inadvertently dragging a chain, or a trailer that was sending out sparks. Firefighters were able to get it under control and keep it from spreading too far.
