Elk City News: Library posts new hours for summer

I need to make a correction to last week’s column and an apology to the Sew Help Me Quilters who were responsible for awarding the quilts. It was the Dixie members of the club who made and presented the quilts, but it was in the name of the club. Sorry about that.

Another great celebration is in the books...I hope everyone enjoyed our little town get-together. Wow, 40 years have now passed for White Bird Days and 29 for the rodeo.
