TRICK OR TREAT

It is almost time for trick or treat in Wynona. Make plans now for Monday, Oct. 31, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The kids will be out in full force, so drivers are reminded to only drive 15 mph through the residential areas and only 25 mph on the Highway. Let’s make it a fun night for all the kids!

DOG PROBLEMS

Once again, people are asked to keep their dogs penned or on a leash, as there have been many complaints about dogs being out, tearing up people’s trash, littering yards, etc. Wynona residents are reminded that there is a leash law in effect and dogs are not allowed to run at large!
