‘Yarning of Enid’ was a great event
You know, I love a good yarn, except for those coming out of Washington on a daily basis.
The “Yarning of Enid,” however, was a really great event. I can’t imagine the amount of time and people it took to get it done. The parking meters, trees, statues — all were uniquely decorated.
Those involved deserve a big “thank you” and a slap on the back for bringing a great deal of joy to the city of Enid.
On another note, I did finally see a car with its left turn signal on. Trouble is, it was turning right. Keep smiling.

Thanks for arranging a much-needed event
I would like to share a great event that happened at Trinity Baptist Church on Saturday, Sept. 21. The Feed the Children Organization came to our church and gave free eye exams to 313 people. They also furnished glasses to people who needed them after being examined.
Our pastor, John Doffer, went to Oklahoma City and drove the “dental truck” from the Baptist Dental Services back to Enid for dental examinations. I would like to say thanks to Dr. Kauk, Dr. Moore and Dr. Teft for their time and services. They examined 47 patients and extracted 81 teeth. I want to especially thank Pastor Doffer for arranging such a blessed and much-needed event. The Trinity Youth Group were wonderful helpers.
Although this was mentioned in the paper, I truly believe this could have been a wonderful hometown story from the east side of Enid.
