Coats For Kids
The Lawton Board of Realtors is working hard to provide coats to all school-age children in Lawton.  Visit their page to find out how you can help!  
Help-Portrait is about GIVING pictures, not taking them. These portraits aren’t for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.

Photographers will be set up in the Great Plains Coliseum Annex to take your photo for FREE and hand a single 8x10 print to you at the event.


We are excited to announce that our in-house education program Success By 6 has acquired 3 portable Born Learning Trails (with a generous grant from the Oklahoma Partnership for School Readiness) to loan out to Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Childcare teachers to help their students learn while being physically active. For more information please call Barbara Griffin at
