Meigs Jewelry is Holding the Baton with Relay for Life

To hear the tragic news that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer is the most dreaded words that anyone can imagine. Unless you have fought the fight the magnitude of the sickness is incomprehensible. Four years ago my naivety changed when our very dear friend and co-worker, Debbie Miller was diagnosed with breast cancer. The bravery and determination that she exhibited during her battle were more than I could imagine. She fought the fight with such grace and won.  Debbie is now cancer free and we couldn’t be happier for her as she and husband Randall are truly living life and cherishing every moment!

United as our store family we walked, taking a stance against cancer.  We joined forces raising awareness and money with over 5,000 other communities throughout 27 countries.  It brings great pride knowing that our small contribution joined with others around the world is making a difference.

And the race begins!  So awesome to see the parade of survivors headed by little Mae Mae Cochran!

2017 Spring Clean Up!

Saturday was such a beautiful day in Tahlequah and to see the hustle and bustle throughout town truly warms our hearts. Meigs Jewelry is so proud to be part of our community, one that cares and gladly volunteers for a cause. Between the “Hero Dash” raising money for child welfare, NSU’s Big Event sending out hundreds of volunteers into the private sectors of our community, and “My Tahlequah’s” cleanup, it was a BUSY day!!!

This year, we had 15 Meigs Jewelry volunteers participating in My Tahlequah’s 3rd Annual Spring Clean Up. Part of our team gave the iron work and lamp posts around the Chamber building a shiny new coat of black paint.

Others painted the iron railings on Delaware from Water Street to Muskogee Ave. In addition, we freshened our bump out and planted new trees on the south side of our building and picked up trash throughout downtown.

A busy day of work, but we are never too busy to break for lunch. We all enjoyed a delicious “Boom Burger Basket” from the Boomerang! Yum!

The real reward is seeing the sense of community that we live amidst. Tahlequah, we are proud to call you home!

Join us for the 3rd Annual Spring Clean Up with MyTahlequah

It’s time for the 3rd Annual Spring Clean Up with MyTahlequah. This organization was founded to promote the cleanliness and beauty of our special town. Meigs Jewelry is so excited to participate and join hands with the hundreds of volunteers that participate in this event each year.

It is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 1st from 10 am until 2 pm. We will meet at the NSU Activity Center parking lot for a kickoff breakfast and group photo before heading out to our perspective jobs. We love the camaraderie of our quaint town and being a part of making it a more beautiful place for all to enjoy.  If you, your family, or business would like to participate as well, please go to www.mytahlequah.com and register.  Together we can make a difference!

The Meigs Jewelry “Clean Team” consists of twelve employees and family members ranging from all ages. You can find us Saturday in our green MyTahlequah t-shirts sprucing up the flowers in our bump-out on Muskogee Avenue, cleaning and weeding the bricks on Delaware Street, and clearing out our back alley.

Philanthropy and community service is part of the Meigs Jewelry culture and we always are looking for ways to give back to our surrounding Tahlequah area as often as we can. Last year the Spring Clean Up had over 650 volunteers, and how impressive would it be to top that number in 2017!
