Oklahoma School for the Blind
What a show today at the Oklahoma School for the Blind in Muskogee!
This was their big Centennial celebration, with a day's worth of activities planned. All the kids and teachers were dressed in period costume, as you can see, with authentic hand-sewn bonnets! The lady in the fabulous purple hat is the librarian, Sandi Hilbern. She was my host, and she and the kids made me feel like a star. The kids had learned my songs, and they sang and participated with gusto. After the program they went outside to reenact the land run.
Many thanks to my friend Sara Dunlap who took these photos!
