Christmas ornaments hidden on west side of Oologah

As a fun activity for parents and their children during the Christmas break, ten ornaments have been hidden on the west side of Oologah for all to find. The ornaments (none of which are along the highway) are visible from the road and can be seen from inside a car. All ornaments are identical and none are found on dead-end streets. Please respect person’s property when ornament hunting, and leave them in place for others to enjoy this safe activity.
