The Annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting  last Thursday in Purcell was fantastic.

With the loss of the parade for a couple of years due to COVID, it was so good to have a jam-packed parade back this year.

Thanks to everyone who made it such an enjoyable evening!


Purcell’s Lights From the Heart at Chandler Park will be open nightly until Saturday, December 31, from 5:30-10 p.m. nightly.

Visit the light display for a photo with Santa on December 17 from 5:30-10 p.m.

Over two miles of lights are available to drive through.

Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

This is such a great recipe to have on hand for get togethers. It comes from my mother-in-law Carolyn Montgomery of Norman.

Copper Pennies

2 lbs. carrots, peeled, sliced and cooked until barely tender, drain. (Pretty small slices, not big)

1 small green pepper, thinly sliced

1 medium onion, thinly sliced


10.5 oz. can tomato soup

1/2 cup oil

3/4 cup cider vinegar

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. prepared mustard (powder)

1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

Blend all the dressing ingredients together and pour over cooked carrots. Let marinate.

Put in refrigerator with cover and turn over after about two days and then again.

Will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.

It will keep mixed up if you keep turning it over.
