Veterans and Family Wellness Fair
Many Veterans struggle to connect with local resources in areas such as medical. housing, education, health, community, and employment after leaving the military. Our goal is to connect Veterans with available resources within the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs and within the local community. We will have information booths and a series of 15-minute presentation on topics such as Veterans Benefits Overview, Caregiver Support, Suicide Prevention, Mental and Physical Health Self-Care, and Resume writing and Review.
Vendors: Instead of a fee for the booth space we are asking for donations for the Door Prizes and/or gift bags. Register your organization at www.surveymonkey.com/r/ESWellnessFair

The Halloween Poker Run
The Halloween Poker Run is the first Saturday in November each year. Help us raise money for the Envision Success Accessibility Programs. The Halloween Poker Run Fun begins at our location with a Power Chair Awareness Accessibility Challenge for individuals who don’t use powerchairs to learn some of the daily challenges encountered by individuals that use the Powerchairs regularly. Prizes awarded to the top participants.
Next is the leisurely ride through the countryside surrounding Norman with 5 stops to collect your poker hand. To add a bit of fun, at each stop you will earn your card by playing a carnival type game. Businesses providing space for the stops often offer specials for participants or donate a portion of their sales to Envision Success for Veterans. The final stop will be at a Norman business where prizes will be awarded to the individual with the best and the worst hands, and raffle ticket winners. Four wheeled vehicles also welcome.
