Mabee Babies in the News

 Many thanks to John Durkee with KWGS 89.5 FM for producing a story about our Mabee Babies (see “News Release” below) that aired this morning. Jo Bright, North Mabee club director, was featured in the story. Mrs. Bright sounds out of breath at the beginning of the broadcast and for good reason - she and one other employee keep track of more than 100 kids a day at the club.

Tara Vreeland with KOTV – Channel 6 was surrounded by club kids more than once Wednesday night as they worked on a story.  (see photo) Keep your TV on after the Super Bowl - it will air on the 10 p.m. news.
Update: Story is below! Great job Tara!

Tulsa World sports writer Bill Haisten and Harold Williams, who has coached at the North Mabee Boys & Girls Club for 22 years, talked football for an hour and a half yesterday.  Coach Williams also gave Bill and me a look at the football equipment room where we hoped to find Meachem’s old helmet. No such luck, but I did feel the presence of the ghosts of football’s past. Thank you Bill, Harold and Jo. I can’t wait to see the story in the Tulsa World Sunday!
