Great artist! I’ve been wanting to see him perform for 6 years and finally had a concert within the region. Did not disappoint!

Been to a lot of concerts, but David was by far one of the best. Great performance and a class act. Simply AMAZING!!!

From July 27 - September 30, the City of Shawnee has implemented a mask ordinance. Masks are required when one is indoors in a public location. This would include concerts and stores. Masks are not required while you are eating - they are required while you wait. Masks are not required for outdoor activities like the Splash Park. Spectators at an indoor sporting event would require a mask, participants are not required to mask. The outdoor flea markets would be exempt from masks, unless required by the organizers. Masks are not required for people that are medically unable to wear masks or children under age 11. Many properties, such as tribal casinos or those outside of the City limits, previously implemented mask requirements. Click HERE for full text.

  • Pack your mask. Keep a mask handy in your purse or back-pocket.
  • When in doubt, wear your mask.
  • Keep an eye out for signage with further instructions.
  • You may experience modified hours of operation or reservations required.
  • If you have specific questions or concerns, contact the entity you are visiting directly by clicking the link to their website and contact information.

SHAWNEE, OK, USA - Did you know?
Aloysius Larch-Miller -
Shawnee's own Suffragette
Dedication of Larch-Miller Park, Sunday @ 6:30

In honor of the celebrating our Independence Day and voting in the Oklahoma primary elections, this week we introduce you to Shawnee's own suffragette and women's rights advocate.

Aloysius Larch-Miller (1886-1920) moved with her family to the Shawnee area between 1900 and 1905. She was involved with the Red Cross during WWI. She called the first mass meeting of suffragettes in Oklahoma.

In 1918, Oklahoma passed a suffrage bill allowing women to vote, but not hold office. In 1920, Larch-Miller was invited to attend a debate over ratification of the 19th Amendment. Though battling life threatening influenza, she defeated her rivals arguments and secured agreement to adopt the amendment. Ms. Aloysius may well have died for her beliefs, dying of illness on Feb 2, 1920. Oklahoma ratified the 19th Amendment on February 27, 1920.

In 1982, Larch-Miller was inducted into the Oklahoma Women's Hall of Fame as one of their first class of inductees. Shawnee's Larch-Miller Park is on the east side of the north 900 Block of Broadway, across from Rebud Park.
