One of the most asked questions I get from citizens is “How do I get involved in my community?”. There are many ways to get involved. Below is a list of things that residents can participate in.
Ore City Lions Club
Lions Club is a group of members who’s goal is to ensure that every citizen has the gift of good vision. If you have unused glasses you would be willing to donate, there is a drop off box at City Hall, or you can donate them to any Lions Club member. Lions Club meets every Wednesday at the Ore City School Library in room A at noon. Join us for a delicious school lunch for only $3.50. If you are interested in joining Lions Club please contact Bubba DeBerry (President) or Kristan Kahler (Membership Coordinator) at 903-968-2511. We look forward to having you!
Ore City OASIS
OASIS: Older Americans Sharing in Service is a group of older citizens who meet the first Thursday of each month at the Ore City Community Center at noon. Share in a meal and fellowship while planning for community service projects.
Ore City Garden Club
The Garden Club is a group of citizens who meet the second Thursday of each month at the Community Center at noon to plan local horticultural projects as well as other activities relating to gardening.
OC Connections gets the community members and parents connected to the school and various projects going on in the OCISD. OC Connections meets in the Ore City School Library Room A at noon for a delicious school lunch ($3.50) and a student led program. Come out and support your school, students and staff on these dates: Sept. 22, Oct. 27, Nov. 17, Jan. 26, Feb. 23, Mar 23, and Apr. 27, 2017.
Support our local young athletes with the Ore City Rebel Booster Club. Meet the first Monday of each month in the High School Cafeteria at 7:00pm.
Ore City Trade Days
