Cole Butler relaxes in the new event center at The Nut House in Claremore.
Centennial celebrations are ending this month as Oklahomans reflect on the past century. The pioneering spirit still fills the hearts of those who call Oklahoma home. Today, the time has come to look forward. Cole Butler is looking forward as he takes a huge step and runs for Rogers County Sheriff. Butler invites all Rogers County residents to eat and socialize on November 3 as he officially kicks off his election campaign. Held from noon to 3 p.m. at The Nut House’s new event center, the party will host food, fun and prizes.
Butler chose The Nut House for its location and rustic atmosphere. “If you pair that with the forward thinking of the new owners in their preparation for the growth of Rogers County, there is no better place,” he says. “Besides, it has some of the best homemade treats in the state.”
At the age of eight, Butler escaped the big city by reading stories by Laura Ingles Wilder. He was determined to have a pioneering spirit and live in a log cabin. For the past 15 years, Butler and his wife, Debbie, have been raising their family in a log cabin in northeastern Rogers County. To further develop his pioneering spirit, Butler is running for Rogers County Sheriff.
Butler has served in the Tulsa Police Department for over 26 years. His qualifications in law enforcement are extensive, and he is highly regarded by his peers on the force. Butler mentions that changes need to be made in the Rogers County Sheriff’s Department. As Rogers County is the fastest-growing county in Oklahoma, Butler says, “The sheriff’s department has to progress as the county progresses.”
The Nut House is on the forefront of progress with the development of a family-friendly event center. Wedding receptions, concerts, large family reunions and even watch parties now have an economical venue and a convenient location with a gorgeous setting. The event center boasts a stage, kitchen facilities, plenty of restrooms and ample parking.
Patrons to The Nut House can visit with Sharon Doughtery, sales associate, who is excited about the added features and amenities of The Nut House. “We also have a wonderful selection of items that will make great Christmas gifts,” she says.
The route to The Nut House may take a little extra effort when traveling on Highway 66 from the north. Drivers will have to use the turn-around a little further south, then head back in the northbound lane. Located at 26677 S. Highway 66 in Claremore, The Nut House makes sure the drive is well worth it.
Gather up the family and stop by The Nut House on November 3. Cole Butler is excited to meet new people and wants to be your Rogers County Sheriff. “I love to learn, and I am excited to bring progressive ideas to the sheriff's office,” he says.
