Park Christmas Displays
The Chamber is sponsoring a contest for displays at Riverside Park this year! If you, your business, or organization is interested in having a display in the park a work day has been scheduled for Nov. 30th from 9am-4pm. City crews will be available to help with placement and electricity. If you are unable to make it that day please call the City at 795-4433 to make an appointment for the 28th or 29th from 9am-4pm. Those setting up a display are responsible for their own electric cords and photo eyes. There will be three 1st prizes for $50 each. Businesses and organizations will have 2 categories– Fantasy or Religious with a 1st prize in each category. Individuals can also participate for a 1st place prize which can be any theme.
The winners of the $250 utility credit drawing are Phyllis Cosby and Margel Feland! Thanks to everyone who turned in their surveys. If you haven't turned in the LMI survey that was included in last month's utility bills please do so as soon as possible. This survey will help the city become eligible for future grants. If you no longer have the survey you may come to the City Office and get a replacement survey and envelope. If the required percentage of responses is not achieved soon, the city will go door-to-door until that percentage is reached.

Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley. Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem. Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
