McALESTER — The Stuart Area Firefighters Auxiliary will host the Staurt Alumni Day in downtown Stuart, on May 11, and they are making a call for vendors and those interested in booth space.

Booth space is $10, said Jeanette Tweedel of the Stuart Area Firefighters Auxiliary.

Tweedel said organizers are working on events such as a bake-off with awards, horse shoe tournament and she said the auxiliary will also have a bake sale in an effort to raise money for a new bunker for the fire department.

She said gaming booths are welcome too. The auxiliary will be cooking hot dogs, hamburgers and there will be inflatables, she said.

Tweedel said the auxiliary is also trying to organize a pet parade and to award best looking pet, ugliest pet and best pet costume.

Tweedel said the auxiliary is trying to organize events that will benefit everyone in the community, bring life to Staurt’s downtown and develop events to look forward to yearly.

For more information, contact Tweedel by calling 918-318-0121.
