4-WHEELER/GOLF CART/DOG REMINDER

Wynonans are reminded that the 4-wheeler/golf cart stickers were due for renewal on Jan. 1, 2015. There have not been very many who have renewed, so just remember that they are due.

A town ordinance requires that all dogs are to be registered through the town. This is a one-time per dog charge. The cost for the registration and town tag is $2.50. Proof of rabies vaccination must be presented when purchasing the tag.

BENEFIT POKER RUN FOR JAYLYNN

Jaylynn Garrett is 6 years old and 3 years ago, she began fighting an auto immune disease, which is still undetermined as she still goes through testing frequently, looking for a diagnosis. Recently Jaylynn has had other medical problems crop up that she is also undergoing tests. A benefit poker run is being hosted to help with medical expenses for her parents, Nichole and Jason Garrett. The Run is Saturday, April 25th. The first bike out will be at 10 a.m. at the Office in Wynona and the last bike in will also be at the Office at 4 p.m. It is $15 for the first hand and $5 for the second hand. Stops will be at The Office in Wynona, The Teepee Bar in Hominy, The Crossroads on Hwy 20 near Skiatook, Whiskey Bent at 1333 E Tuxedo Blvd in Bartlesville, and J Bar S in Barnsdall. There will be a 50/50 drawing and food will be served at the Office upon Return. Let’s all help Little Miss Jaylynn, a Girl Interrupted but Fighting Back..
