The TSET Healthy Living Program is working alongside the Purcell Police Department, the City of Purcell,and Purcell Public Schools to host the 2nd Annual Play Streets Events!

Play Streets final event will be Monday, July 25.

For those of you who are not familiar with Play Streets, organizers will shut down part of the drive on the south end of the TSET location, 919 N. 9th Ave., where the Library/School/Health Department is located, and open the area up for children to come play.

Lots of activities are planned and kids are encouraged to attend.


The Purcell Public Library will present “Skeletons Explored: Locomotion and Skeletal Adaptations” from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, in the meeting room.

Observe a variety of animal skeleton’s features and discover how they move and survive with the Skeletons Museum of Osteology.

The program is designed for children ages 8 to 11 and registration is required.

Much can be learned from observing the bones associated with motion: diet, predator-prey relationships, and much more. Learn about the different types of movement among animals and how they have adapted to survive with the Skeletons Museum of Osteology.


The Heart of Oklahoma Back 2 School Bash will be held Saturday, August 6, starting at 5 p.m.

The event will be located at Main Street and 2nd Ave. in downtown Purcell.

There will be a mechanical bull, pony rides, a petting zoo, a climbing wall, games, free school supplies and lots more.

Everyone is welcome and everything is free.


This is a great recipe to fix during the hot summer months. You don’t have to turn on your oven!

Slow Cooker Ranch Barbecue Chicken

1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1-1/2 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix Shaker

2 cups barbecue sauce

In the slow cooker, place the chicken, broth and 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix.

Cook on high for 3–4 hours or low for 6–7 hours until the chicken is tender. Shred with two forks, drain excess liquid, and place back into the slow cooker.

Stir the remaining seasoning mix with the barbecue sauce and pour back over the chicken. Stir well and cook for another 45 minutes.

Serve warm on sandwiches, in tortillas or over rice.
