The online cam- paign ended with $2,600.  This year, the Humane Society is set to take part in the Texoma Day of Giving on Thursday, coming just more than a month before Bark in the Park, which is set for Oct. 26 in Fuqua Park. The Texoma Gives event helps various non-profit orga- nizations in the community raise additional funds through their online campaigns.  Sidney Lewis, membership, events and fundraising for the Humane Society, said Texoma Gives is an important event for the Humane Society because it does help provide necessary funding for the organization, especially when it comes to the care of its animals.  Lewis said it would also be her last event with the Humane Society because she is set to leave the organization late this month. However, she already has her replacement in place and hopes the transition go smoothly. Lt. Gov. Tourism Summit to come to Duncan By Derrick Miller  Four communities in Oklahoma were select- ed to host the Lieutenant Governor’s Travel and Tourism Summit, and Duncan was among those cities chosen.  Duncan’s participation in the summit will be Oct. 3 at the Simmons Center.  Teri Knox, the Duncan Convention and Visi- tors Bureau director, said Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell has been a strong advocate for tourism in Oklahoma. Knox said a lot of money is spent to encourage visitors to the state.  The Convention and Visitors Bureau is part of the tourism industry in Oklaho- ma, and Knox said the organization does its best to bring in people to Oklahoma and, more specifically, Duncan.  “All of our efforts go outside of Duncan,” Knox said. “We help support events in Duncan.”  She said the Lieutenant Governor’s Tourism Summit will give the Convention and Visitors Bureau another way to be involved in bringing people to Oklahoma. The organization will be the host for the summit.  Knox said this is a significant event for the community.  “We’re excited that Duncan was selected,” she said. May We Never Forget!
