Overbrook Middle School Gopher Memorabilia Silent Auction

Special Opportunity to help restore electrical power to the north diamond backstop at Overbrook's Jones Park- if you're an Overbrook Middle School Gopher alumni or friend or family of said Gopher, Overbrook Park and Rec will be holding a silent auction of a treasure trove of team and individual trophies, plaques, and photographs from the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's.  The silent auction is to take place during the Overbrook Osage County Fair the week of August 12th through 16th.  The items were left in boxes at the old Middle School when the building was transferred to the City of Overbrook.  The school district was contacted to see if they wanted the boxes for the new consolidated Overbrook Attendance Center but they did not have room.  Other attempts to find a new home were unsuccessful.  However, their loss is your gain.  You can participate in the silent auction and take home a piece of your middle school history!

Here's a link to the list of trophies (each will have an item #)

Updated Tree Limb Drop-off Information

**** Please note  ****  Monday, July 13th will be the last day for the lot to be open at 2nd and Oak.  The regular tree dump at the lagoons will remain open.  Thank you!    Jim Koger

If you have tree limbs or branches down and need a place to drop them off, the tree dump is open on the south east end of our lagoons located just south of Overbrook.  We've also made arrangements to have the lot open for branch\limb drop-off at the SW corner of 2nd Street and Oak in the graveled area north of where Marshall Automotive was for many years.  I've attached a map to show where the lot is located.  If you have questions, please call City Hall 665-7328 or 785-224-5157.  Thank you!  Jim Koger CMC  Overbrook City Clerk
