ELK CITY – For those of you who haven’t been down river in the last few days since we got all that rain, there are close to a dozen places where debris has slid down the mountain and across the road. The photo shows one such just below the 24-mile marker. Thanks to the road crews, they have been able to keep the road open.

Did you notice that the pad the tank was sitting on at the park was under water last week?

Remember, Easter sunrise service, April 21, 7 a.m., with a breakfast following at 8:15 a.m.; Sunday school for all ages at 9 a.m., and worship service with communion at 10 a.m., at the Elk City Baptist Church.

News from Sue: Mark your calendars! Friends of the Elk City Library will be holding their fun and famous beer and wine tasting event on Friday, May 10, at 6 p.m., at the Elk City Laundromat.

Attendees will receive a number of “tastes” of a variety of beers and/or wines, a plethora of delicious hors d'oeuvres, the awesome silent auction, and specialty coffee and desserts. There will be pick-n-pay books available to select giving you the opportunity to put books directly on the shelves. A small charge to attend benefits the library directly...our school and community library.

This is a great evening you don't want to miss! Donations accepted for the silent auction...contact Sue Phillips.

The annual Easter egg hunt is set for Sunday, April 21, 11 a.m., at the Elk City School playground.

There's also an Easter dinner potluck for the community at 1 p.m., Sunday, April 21, at the VFW. Meat, green beans and rolls will be provided.
