Vendor booths include a hamburger stand operated by the Wynona Volunteer Fire Department. When lunch begins at 11 a.m., local firefighters will be serving hamburgers, fries and a drink for $5 — with proceeds to benefit the department. A softball game is set for 12:30 p.m.

Evening events get going with a barbecue dinner at 6 p.m. Karaoke is scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and the street dance — featuring the Risky Business band — starts at 9 p.m. and is to continue until 1 a.m.

CLEANUP REQUESTED

The Wynona Board of Trustees is asking that all Wynona residents clean up their yards and around their homes as much as possible before Saturday.

SPECIAL THANKS

Wynona is especially grateful to a few guys who are always there to help. With only one utility department employee, it’s really hard to keep up with the local mowing. Ralph McGill, Jason Stansberry and Ronald Myers have been very good to help Larry Dilley out with the mowing before Founder’s Day.
