"Jingle some bells!" is the wording on the invitation to the
Circle Club's Christmas celebration. The cocktail buffet will be
at 7 p.m. Dec. 1 in the Hall of Mirrors at Civic Center Music
Hall. The Circle Club is made up of people who have made major
personal contributions to the Allied Arts Foundation.
Party goers will be able to watch the dress rehearsal
performance of the annual Christmas show staged by two of the
Allied Arts Foundation's seven agencies, the Oklahoma City
Philharmonic Orchestra and the Canterbury Choral Society. Joining
those two musical groups on stage will be Oklahoma City
University's American Spirit Dance Co.
Public performances of "A Yuletide Festival" are planned
Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3 in the Music Hall.
Incidentally, Canterbury's very own traditional Christmas
program will be at 3 p.m. Dec. 4 at the Music Hall. Joining the
Canterbury singers will be the combined Children's Choruses of
Edmond, Norman and Oklahoma City. . .
If you want to decorate your space for the holidays, you may want
to visit the annual Christmas open house at the John E.
Kirkpatrick Horticulture Center on the campus of Oklahoma State
University-Oklahoma City, 400 N. Portland Ave.
Everything from poinsettias to Santa Claus will be featured
from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for the public to enjoy with family and
friends. Admission is free.
The center will be decked out in Christmas finery so families
may want to bring cameras to photograph youngsters with the
flowers or with Santa and his Old English Sheepdog. Holiday craft
demonstrations and musical entertainment are planned. . .
Dr. G. Rainey Williams and his associates at the University of
Oklahoma Institute for Breast Health have received two early
Christmas gifts _ and another is yet to come.
At a meeting this week, the institute was presented with
$40,507.39, proceeds from a showing of Sylvano Ferragamo fashions
by Balliet's earlier this year. The money will go into the
research fund. Co-chairing the benefit were Laurie Givens and
Then Dr. Alan Hollingsworth, medical director of the
institute, introduced its other "Christmas present," Dr. Debra S.
Mitchell. She will become the new director of imaging at the
Breast Institute in January. Currently at Mercy Hospital,
Mitchell has been in private radiology practice and was
considered an outstanding student and radiology resident when she
attended the OU College of Medicine.
The third holiday gift for the Breast Health Institute will be
the gift of proceeds from the recent Flaming Festival, an annual
fund-raiser sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Theta Alumnae
