Around Town: Heritage Hills Bike Tour set.

Byline: Joan Gilmore

If you like to ride bicycles leisurely through an interesting neighborhood, here's your chance. History OffCenter is offering a bike tour of the Heritage Hills neighborhood of Oklahoma City on Sept. 8.

The group will meet at the Henry Overholser Mansion, 405 NW 15th St., at 10 a.m. and ride about 4 miles at a leisurely pace while exploring the history of Heritage Hills.

Historian Bob Blackburn, who knows everything about every neighborhood in the city, will offer his profile of this historic neighborhood.

The tour will conclude back at the mansion around 11:30 a.m. The participants who were smart enough to pack lunches will dine and then join the other bikers who are enjoying lawn games on the mansion grounds.

The tour is free but pre-registration is required. To register, visit For info, call 405-522-5202. Preservation Oklahoma Inc. is co-sponsor of this event.

Get your Western wear

It's time to locate your boots and sombreros (hats?). The annual Cattle Baron's Ball will be Sept. 15 at the OKC Farmers Market and will start promptly at 6 p.m.

Sponsored by the American Cancer Society, the evening will offer live and silent auctions, live music and food provided by local restaurants. KOCO-TV's Jessica Schambach and Abigail Ogle will be emcees.

One of the auction items is a newly reissued vinyl copy of the soundtrack of the 1978 film Grease, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this summer. It was personally signed for ACS by Olivia Newton-John, who is a cancer survivor.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at That's if you're 21 years of age or older.

The Cancer Society's "Real Men Wear Pink" will actually do this throughout the month of October. The brave and dedicated businessmen to watch for are Phil Lance, 2018 RMWP chairman and president of the Integris Cancer Institute; Charlie Brown; Matt Farthing; Joseph Wright; Dwayne Williams; Victor Campos; Allen Haag; Randy Kamp; Randy Nance; and two physicians, David Lam and Shripal Bhavsar.

Be sure to ask them to show you the "pink" item they're wearing!

Callaway sings Streisand

Don't forget that the music of Barbra Streisand will be sung by Ann Hampton Callaway in a concert with Tulsa's Signature Symphony on Sept. 7 at Tulsa Community College. Ann, a Platinum Award-winning songwriter, will perform the Streisand Songbook and other tunes.
