OKAY SENIOR Center community members and board want to thank all those who gave time, money and services to help make our Bean Dinner Benefit on Aug. 24 a great success. The Senior Center made $2,161 that evening and everyone had a wonderful time. Your generosity helps us keep our doors open and we are very grateful.

A special thank you to our wonderful volunteers who spent hours passing out flyers door to door, auctioneering, gathering donations from businesses, donating food, cooking and cleaning. They are the heart of our non-profit organization.

Businesses that donated were: Muskogee Lowe’s, Wagoner and Muskogee Charlie’s Chicken, Wagoner Flower Shop, Sonic Drive-In on North York, Marvin’s IGA, and Chilango’s on 32nd Street in Muskogee, Martin’s Restaurant in Okay, and Dr. Robbie Evans Chiropractor (Muskogee). Anew Direction-the band and special friends of the Okay Senior Center.

Thank you again, from all of us at the Okay Senior Center.

A SPECIAL THANK you to the Muskogee Phoenix and reporter Dewayne Smoot for all the news stories you cover for the city and our community. Your reporting has helped our city leaders to do great services for the city of Muskogee and for our communities.

The most recent is the Martin Luther King Center. The city is doing a better job to help the community because of your story. Thank you, sir, for all of your help and support.

THE THIRD annual Waterloop Trail Run was held Aug. 11 and once again it was a huge success. We were able to donate $2,100 to both Women Who Care and Women in Safe Home. Thank you seems so inadequate. The help and support received was over the top. Honor Heights Park is such an asset to our community and such a wonderful place to hold the trail run.

Following is a list of sponsors: PK X-ray, Northeast Oklahoma Cancer Center, Holloway’s Blue Print Company, Muskogee  Phoenix, Allied Home Health, Security Alarm Company, Muskogee Running Club, Hogle Plumbing, Okie Country 101.7 KTFX, Tahlequah City Hospital, Browns Shoes, Paceline Cyclery, Budweiser, Reddy Ice, Muskogee Regional Radiation Oncology, Love Bottling, American Industrial Supply, Whitaker Warehousing, Homeland, personal trainer Regina Gower, Muskogee EMS and Muskogee Firefighters.

Special thanks to Phillip Kizzia, your help was appreciated so much. We must also thank Joel Everett and Muskogee Running Club for their continued support and the anonymous donors who bought the bicycles given away at the run.

Once again we couldn’t have done this without the help and support of our families, friends, and co-workers. We love and appreciate you more than words can express. To the runners and walkers who participated, great job. Hope to see you next year.
