Around Town: Time for tickets to Hall of Fame.

Byline: Joan Gilmore

In case you've forgotten, the 91st annual Oklahoma Hall of Fame banquet and induction ceremony will take place in Tulsa on Nov. 15. Invitations went out this week. If you want a close seat, you need to get your order in. The prestigious event will be at the Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Convention Center, 6808 S. 107th East Ave. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Because the induction ceremony will be televised promptly at 7:15 p.m., diners have to be prompt also.

A celebratory reception will begin immediately after the induction ceremony. (Oh, black-tie attire is preferred.)

The Oklahoma Hall of Fame 2018 honorees include Paul Allen, Enid, presented by David McLaughlin; David Rainbolt, Oklahoma City, presented by Clayton I. Bennett; Jon R. Stuart, Tulsa, by David L. Boren; Carrie Underwood, Checotah, by Bryan White; Mo Anderson, Waukomis, by John Davis; and Ree Drummond, Pawhuska, by Ladd Drummond.

The 2018 Oklahoma Hall of Fame posthumous honoree is Charlie Christian, Oklahoma City.

Reservations may be made by calling Brenda Schwartz at (405) 523-3209. Single tickets are priced at $250 and other reservation options are available.

Leadership recognized

Leadership Oklahoma will honor Joe Alexander with the Distinguished Leadership Award during the 2018 All Class Reunion dinner and networking event at White Barn Estates in Stillwater.

Marion Paden, president and CEO of Leadership Oklahoma, said the two-day event will be Sept. 20 and 21. The program will include two seminars and also hear from candidates in five statewide races.

A member of Class XII of Leadership Oklahoma, Alexander is being recognized by his work for Leadership Oklahoma and support of his community and state.

Pumpkinville coming

Grown-ups, as well as children, look forward each year for October and pumpkins and ghosts and stuff. October is nigh and OGE Corp. is right on time, ready to open the seventh annual Pumpkinville at the Myriad Botanical Gardens on Oct. 5.

The Children's Garden, a 17-day, harvest-themed festival, will run through Oct. 21.

The Myriad Gardens will be transformed into a New England-themed Pumpkin Town with thousands of pumpkins, hundreds of gourds, a variety of fall foliage and tons of fun activities.

Cost to attend is free to Gardens members and $8 per person for nonmembers. Children under the age of 2 are admitted free.
