Are you in favor of backwards parking on West 7th in Newkirk?

Community Chest sets goal

Dear Community Supporter,

Once again we are requesting your support to the many programs that make the quality of life in Newkirk something of value.  The programs that have requested funding this year include:  Newkirk Youth Program, Newkirk Take Down Club, Newkirk Public Library, Newkirk Community Historical Society, Newkirk Education Foundation, Newkirk Main Street, Newkirk Animal Welfare, Northern Oklahoma Youth Services, and Opportunity Center.

You will note, of course, that two of these programs are not specifically Newkirk programs but are for all of Kay County.  However, because many Newkirk residents do use these programs, we feel it is necessary to include them in our budget.  You will, also, note that five of these programs are exclusively for our youth; however, every one of the programs provides services for youth as well as adults.  The support includes sports programs specifically for our Newkirk youth.  Two of these programs target troubled and abused youth with guidance and counseling for the youth and their families.

Support is needed in providing services for the developmentally disabled to progress to self-sufficiency and independence.  Your donation will go to support some of our friends and neighbors who are in need of a helping hand through hard times to provide the basic services.  You will also support the Newkirk Public Library that enriches all of us, young and old.  Maintaining our heritage is the goal of the Newkirk Community Historical Society as well as Newkirk Main Street and with them we will continue to revitalize the downtown area , the heart of our community.

The Community Chest has set a goal of $17,500 for this drive.  All the money goes to these organizations other than approximately $800 that is spent on envelopes, letters, and stamps.  With your generous donation, this goal will be met.  It takes all of us working together to provide funds for each of these organizations that affect the quality of life in Newkirk. 

Donations may be mailed or left at Eastman National Bank or Bank of Oklahoma.

Thank you for your support,
Karen Dye, Chairperson
