Discover Oklahoma Airs TG&Y Interview

The Discover Oklahoma segment is scheduled to air at 6:30 p.m. on 3/1/14.  Check your local CBS listings for the channel.

Mr. Hal Pettit will be giving a talk at the Chisholm Trail Museum at 1:00 on 3/1/14.  Refreshments will be served and it will be a great opportunity to hear about TG&Y from Hal.  You never know who will show up.

It’s great to see TG&Y getting some attention after all these years.  It is certainly part of Oklahoma’s heritage and Chisholm Trail Museum has done a great job of publicizing the exhibit.

If there are changes to the schedule, we’ll post them here and on the Facebook page.

Channel 4 (KFOR) Video about the TG&Y Exhibit

Those of you living in Oklahoma City may have seen this but (click here)  Channel 4 (KFOR) taped an interview with Adam Lynn, Chisholm Trail Museum Curator at the museum.

It’s a great exhibit and everyone (former employees) who visits can’t resist a trip down memory lane.

The Channel 25 filming which was originally scheduled on Monday, 2/24 has been postponed but a new date has not been determined.

More information about activity on March 1, 2014 will be posted soon.

Live Segment on Channel 25 KOKH

KOKH Channel 25 will be shooting a live segment on the TG&Y exhibit on February 24, 2014.

If you would like to be there for the segment and possibly share stories about your time at TG&Y, be there between 6:30 and 6:45 a.m.   This might be something you can do on your way to work.

The exhibit has grown a lot because of all the donations once word got out. It’s great to see so much interest in this piece of Oklahoma history.

You can visit the museum’s website as well.

If you’re seeing this and you know someone else who may have worked for TG&Y and may be interested, please pass along the link to the website.
