Our first event of the year is St. Patty's Fest, held the Saturday before St. Patrick's day. Children's Activities are the focus of the day at the OSS. Vendors surround the square offering items for sale, along with food, games, and music. Sponsored by the Route 66 Fest Committee. See Current News for the latest view.
Also sponsored by the Route 66 Fest Committee, this festival is held in June. The OSS volunteers assist children making a craft with a patriotic theme.
Appreciation Day is held in conjunction with Oktoberfest, a Saturday in October. It expresses the Foundation's "Thank You" to the community for its support of the Foundation's mission and efforts. Music, crafts, and refreshments are the order of the day. For a look at the most recent Appreciation Day, click here.
This has become a very popular event in the community. Held the first Thursday evening in December, it definitely kicks off the holiday season. Vendors are scattered about the square, providing an early opportunity to buy those gifts. Horse and buggy rides around the square are a courtesy of the Foundation. The Old Stagecoach Stop is decorated for the season. Lit by oil lamps, the ambience is one not forgotten. For a look at Christmas on the Square at the OSS, click here.
