Thank you to our school resource officer, Officer Steve Talburt and the Osage County Sheriffs’ department for sharing information with our students for Red Ribbon Week! Our students learned about the oath that law enforcement must take to lay down their lives, if necessary, to save others. We are very fortunate to have these officers who work to keep us safe and to carry out justice in our county! Our PTO provided pizza for our guests, students, and teachers.

What a great cookie dough sale! Our students and parents raised over $2,500 for our school! We are now selling various meats that will be delivered before the holidays. We appreciate our community’s support and effort! Remember that the fall carnival is this Friday night from 6 - 8:30 p.m. Everyone is invited! Saturday night, Oct. 25, is our first Mummy and son dance. Sons and adult moms, aunts, sisters, friends are encouraged to join us. Please call 918-846-2467 if you plan to attend. Admission is $20 for Mom and one son and $10 for each extra son. This will be a costume dance.

Red Ribbon Week will last through next Friday. Monday is PAJAMA Day. Every day will have a special theme. Our teachers have made several special plans for Red Ribbon Week.

Report cards went home on Wednesday. If you did not see your child’s report card, a copy will be available in the office.

We seem to have many things going on, please join us for as much as you can!



The Osage Home Health has been coming to Wynona Town Hall for quite some time now to take Blood Pressure and Blood Sugars. She comes on the first of the month or the first day that follows if the first comes on a weekend. This is a good thing for Wynonans, even if they take their readings at home, one can come to Town Hall and verify that their personal readings are correct. We appreciate the Osage Home Health for helping out our town!



Trick or Treat in Wynona will be Thursday, Oct. 30, from 7 - 9 p.m. This is the first time we have had the later hours and it will give people more time to get around after work and school. Also, we are having it on the 30th, Thursday, instead of Friday the 31st because of all the events going on all around us. For those who do not have other things scheduled on Friday, Oct. 31, there will be a double feature movie night at Wynona Town Hall, out on the lawn. There will be a concession stand with chili, coneys, and other goodies. The movies will start off with Hotel Transylvania, and a scarier type movie called “The Conjuring” to be shown after the kid friendly one. Hotel Transylvania starts at 7 p.m. and the other movie will start about 15 minutes after Hotel Transylvania, allowing parents to take their kids home or to a sitter and come back to watch the SCARY one! Proceeds from the event go to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. Dana Lott and her family will be in charge of the event. They invite everyone to come out and have a Howling Good Time! Bring chairs, jackets and blankets! Kids under 18 must be accompanied by an adult!


Wynonans offer their condolences to the many family members and friends of Roy Thomas, who passed away recently. Roy grew up around Wynona and Pawhuska. He was a good man and a good friend to all who knew him and he will be missed!



The Wynona Board of Trustees met for the October meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 21. The Board discussed a complaint against the police department and listened to several people speak regarding the complaint. The Board determined that more information was needed on the complaint.

The Board also voted for pay increases in the Utility Department and the Street and Alley Department.

Just a reminder that Lee Webb, VFW Service Officer, is still coming to the Town Hall on Fridays from 11:30 until 12:30 to help Veterans with their benefits. This is a great opportunity for veterans and should be utilized by all that are qualified. Every Friday Lee will be at the Pawhuska Community Center - 9 - 11 a.m.; Wynona 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.; and Hominy from 1 - 2 p.m. and any other towns that need assistance can come to one of these towns to meet with Lee. Lee wanted to remind everyone that he will also be at Cleveland at the City Hall from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. on Fridays, as well.
