ELK CITY — Marlene George writes, the “VFW Wilderness Post 8311 and its Ladies Auxiliary would like to express their appreciation to Elk City and surrounding communities for their support during Elk City Days at the auxiliary breakfast, the post concession stand, and the auxiliary scholarship auction. The participation of the people in making this one of the most successful, enjoyable celebrations are greatly appreciated.” Because of the generous donations and fantastic bidders, the funds raised at the auction definitely make it possible for the Ladies Auxiliary to offer scholarships to former Elk City students for another year.
Meetings: Sew Help Me quilters on Aug. 26.
Birthdays: Lee Enos, Amy Phillips and Emily Donahoe.
