Talbot Library and Museum will be hosting their annual Book and Bake Sale, 9 a.m.-3 p.m on Old Settlers Day. We expect to be hosting several musicians, Book Signings in the historic Springtown Schoolhouse, as well as offering homemade hamburger dinners for sale. Featured authors who will be offering and signing their books will be noted western novelists, Dusty Richards, Velda Brotherton, Greg Camp and Pamela Foster.
For the first time, Talbot Library and Museum will also host representatives of the Colcord Post Office, offering for sale commemorative ‘Old Settlers Day, Colcord, OK 1929-2014” pre-stamped, postmarked envelopes. This will be a unique remembrance of this special day, as well as a valuable item for collectors.
The annual Colcord Picnic has been held since 1929, celebrating the community and the pioneers who settled the area. Prior to 1928, the community was known as Row, a post office was established there in 1903. The town was later named after Charles F. Colcord, a prominent Oklahoman and benefactor to the community.
There will be many events throughout town all day, parade, hog fry, music, etc.
The Colcord Rodeo will be held nightly June 6 and 7.
