Children and adults enjoyed last year's fencing demonstration at USAO. The community again is invited to participate in the hands-on fencing and swordplay exhibition. The April 9 event is free and open to the public. It is scheduled at 7 p.m. in the Davis Hall Theatre on the USAO campus.

Generally in southwestern Oklahoma the term 'fencing' refers to the containment of livestock in a field or pen. But on April 9, fencing involves foils, lunges and a lot of fun at the University of Science and Arts.

Children and adults alike are invited to take a stab at swordplay when the USAO fencing class presents Foils and Fun, an evening of fencing at 7 p.m. in the Davis Hall Theatre.
