Have you seen the newest bull in town? Pop on by the Arvest in Poteau, Okla., to take a look! Arvest’s popcorn-decorated bull will be tied up inside its branch at 3002 N. Broadway before MOOving to its permanent location at the Arvest ATM at 1228 S. Broadway.

As a long-time supporter of the community, Arvest is excited to join the “Bulls for Poteau Project” steered by the Poteau Chamber of Commerce and the City of Poteau. The organizations announced the project in February 2013 to beef up the arts and history in the community.

In 2013, the groups grabbed the bulls by the horns and placed the first two bulls at the north entrance to town and at the Reynolds Center. Now, other Poteau businesses are chipping in and placing painted bulls in front of their locations.

The Black Angus bull symbolizes both art and the history of the community. Senator Robert S. Kerr made the Black Angus bull notorious in Oklahoma in 1961 when he showed off his prize bull to President John F. Kennedy during a visit to the Kerr Ranch in Poteau.
