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.
