ELK CITY -- Lots of people turned out for the annal Elk City Days celebration. Enjoy the photos. I will have the winners of the logging event in next week’s column. Would love to have others send me their photos for our historical records – even past years. I plan on printing a few from each year that I have some and putting them on the photo boards in the museum. Thanks for any help you can give me.
