Tuesday the Barnsdall Chamber of Commerce met for the first of their October meetings, however the meeting was kept short because several members of the Chamber of Commerce had been invited and were traveling to Cushing to tour the Enbridge Energy Cushing Terminal.
The meeting Tuesday was the first to be run by newly elected Russell Hayman as Chamber President, and Hayman started the meeting off by welcoming the Barnsdall Students of the Month; from the High School Luke Robinson and Linda Marullo, and from the Junior High Holden Billingsly and Alicia Gosney.
Following a short discussion regarding Christmas in Barnsdall, which is scheduled for December 3, Hayman honored long time Barnsdall Chamber Treasurer Paul Overholt. Overholt was presented with a clock for his service to the Chamber and the citizens of Barnsdall. Overholt served as Treasurer for 12 years.
The Chamber then received a presentation from Mary Jackson from PSO regarding energy saving tips and programs offered by PSO. Jackson highlighted a winterization program which is available to those with low or fixed income. Under the program PSO will contract with a company to winterize your home for no cost. PSO also offers rebate programs to those who do not meet the requirements of the winterization program but would like to improve the energy efficiency of their home.
