Special Walking Tours of Lovely 1928 Sanctuary




"Did I mention I am doing some historic walking tours of an artfully historic church sanctuary?  The English Gothic Sanctuary, windows and detailing were dedicated in May of 1928."
 
During the Ruth Haddon Fine Arts Festival (Nov.2-3) there will be tours at:

Sat. Nov. 2 at 11 a.m., 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.
Sun. Nov. 3 at 12:20 and 1:30 and 2:00 p.m.

Guests can tour the booths for paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and other fine art gift ideas and then take one of the tours scheduled.
 
Then, a few weeks later, right before the OKC Tellabration event at Wesley UMC there will be another opportunity.
 
"I will be doing tours from 5:00 to 5:45 p.m. and then right after that will be the storytelling concert at 6 p.m. Tickets for that great event are only $10 per person and will be available at the door."

Cameras are welcome. It is free to attend and donations will be accepted for historic preservation.
