Pretty in pink: The outside artwork at the gallery was decorated with pink ribbons and bows, pink balloons and pink parasols (the baby is a girl) and drive-by guests were given bags of brownie bites and bottles of Champagne.
PRAISE IN THE PARKING LOT
Sixth anniversary event: The congregation and friends of Allen Chapel AME Church, 1400 NE 13, recently celebrated the sixth anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Marcellus Fields and his wife, Brenda Fields.
Appreciation activities: There was a drive-in movie event honoring the couple. A huge screen for viewing was set up in the church’s parking lot. Popcorn, snow cones, hots dogs and candy were served to guests.
We appreciate you: The group also had an “Appreciation Parade” with the Fields as grand marshals. The church members paraded through the neighborhood and returned to the church for “Praise in the Parking Lot,” where gifts and cards of appreciation were presented to the couple of honor for their commitment and service.

Presentations: Two patchwork quilts created by members of the Oklahoma City chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution were presented in Shawnee to veterans recently in recognition of their service and in honor of Veteran’s Day. Etta Reid and Linda Dycus made the presentations for the Quilts of Valor project.
Honorees: The first quilt was presented to Darrell Roe, who served in the US Navy from 1963 to 1967 on the geographical ship USS Maury. While on active duty, he was stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and made maps of the coastlines off of South America, the Philippines and Vietnam. The second quilt was presented to Robert Hartley, who flew helicopters on two tours in Vietnam.
