Looking for something to do? Here is a list of five ways to make the most of your weekend.
Five ways to have fun this weekend.
1. The Oklahoma Emergency Response Team (OKERT) and the Commerce Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will be hosting another CERT class March 10-12 in the Commerce City Hall basement. The course is free. Friday, March 10, will be an evening class from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 11, the class will meet from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and again at 8 a.m. on Sunday, which will be about a 3 to 4 hour day with mock disaster training. Members of the course will be certified both state and nationally. To sign up contact Beau Ross at 918-541-4495 or direct message him on Facebook.
2. Author/historian John Dwyer will be at the Miami Public Library on Monday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. He will discuss his book The Oklahomans: The Story of Oklahoma and Its People. Books will be available for purchase and book signing at the presentation.
3. Only one big film is opening this weekend: “Kong: Skull Island” the latest reboot of the King Kong movies. This one takes place in the early 1970s as a team of explorers and researchers travel to an uncharted island unaware that they are trespassing into the king of the apes’ domain.
4. Celebrate Johnny Appleseed Day on Sunday by making some apple-based delights such as apple pie or cobbler. If you want to try something new, check out FoodNetwork's list of "50 Things to Make with Apples."
5. Time springs forward early Sunday morning, and you can have fun with it by making a game of changing all the clocks and changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. You can also plan some spring-themed events — winter is almost over!
