Wynona News

Wynonans are urged to look around their property and clean up the areas that need it. We are expecting lots of visitors in town for Founders Day, June 14. We always like to have our town looking as good as possible, but particularly on Founders Day. The Town Board has designated the last week in May as clean up time.

There are lots of fun things on the agenda for Founders Day. Some things are still in the planning stages, but one thing we know, Bill Slone’s Country Express Band will once again be providing the good music for the street dance. There are plans in the works for a horseshoe tournament, soap box derby, barbecue cookoff, parade and lots of other fun things. Anyone who is interested in helping out by working some of the events, donating money or prizes are asked to contact Town Hall or Joey Stone.

The Alumni Association has announced that there will be no Alumni Banquet this year, because there wasn’t anyone willing to put it on. So they suggest that all Wynona Alumnus plan to come to the Wynona Founders Day activities. There will be an area for everyone to sit and reminisce and have a good time. This way, we will all be spending the day and evening together, instead of just for a few hours in the evening. Please tell all of your friends and family that are Wynona Alumni about this change of plans, because there will not be any mailings this year. We want all the former Wynona students and staff to be aware of this change and to make their plans to come and join us for all the fun and activities.

Just a reminder that Lee Webb is still coming to the Town Hall on Fridays from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. to help veterans with their benefits.

Veterans are reminded that they can use their tax exempt card from the state to exempt taxes on their phone bills. Contact your telephone provider for more details.

The Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs representative will not be coming to Osage County anymore, but Webb will be still doing veterans assistance for this area.

Every Friday Webb will be at the Pawhuska Community Center from 9 - 11 a.m.; in Wynona from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; in Hominy from 1 - 2 p.m.; and at Cleveland City Hall from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. Any other towns that need assistance can come to one of these towns to meet with Webb.


The Wynona School News will be turned in next week. It was not available at this time because of all the last week of school activities.


Wynonans are urged to remember that school is out and the kids will be out and about in town. Please use caution on the streets and please keep all dogs contained in your yard. Let’s help keep our kids as safe as possible and insure that they have the best summer ever!
