Moyer to receive
?Kaylee Marie Moyer will receive a Master of Education degree from Southwestern Oklahoma State University during the commencement exercises May 10. Kaylee is graduating with top honors.
As an All-American Athlete, Moyer was recently chosen as “Most Valuable Person” of the rodeo team by the Southwestern Oklahoma State University coaching staff. Moyer completed her 5th year of college rodeo for the Central Plains Region by earning the All Round Cowgirl title.
Competing in breakaway roping, goat tying, barrel racing and team roping, Kaylee also took top honor as the 2014 Goat Tying Champion.
Kaylee will be competing at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyo., in June. The 10-day rodeo will be aired on ESPN.
Kaylee has accepted the head rodeo coach position at Frank Phillips College in Borger, Texas.
Kaylee is the daughter of former Rawlins County residents Ronnie and Becky Tally Moyer of Simla, Colo., and the granddaughter of Mary Jo Bearley Moyer.
to help local causes
?A not-for-profit organization in Atwood and a McDonald community club hope to benefit this weekend and coming week from “green” plant sales.
The Ol’ Depot, located on Lake Road in Atwood, is an eclectic antiques, collectables and craft shop managed by a group of local exhibitors. For six years, members have conducted a plant sale the weekend of Mother’s Day to help raise money for the maintenance of the building, which is over 100 years old.
This year’s fundraiser runs from 10 a.m., to 5 p.m., Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10 and from noon to 5 p.m., Sunday, May 11.
A tent will be set up in front of the Depot where members will be planting and selling annuals, perennials, vegetables and unique containers filled with a variety of outdoor plants.
Miscellaneous garden items will be available from Brown’s True Value and Walker’s Garden Center. Atwood FFA Chapter will provide a variety of shepherd’s hooks, concrete items and other items from the Rawlins County High School greenhouse.
Refreshments will be available during the plant sale weekend.
Proceeds will help pay for the bay windows recently replaced with the help of Atwood 2nd Century funds. Members plan to replace all of the south-facing windows in the future.
Club plans 50th sale
for beautifying McDonald
?For 50 years, members of the McDonald Garden Club have hosted a plant and food sale on the second Wednesday in May as their one-and-only fundraiser for the year. Homemade goodies and garden vegetables, annuals and perennial flowers will fill the McDonald Senior Center. The doors will open at 9 a.m., Wednesday, May 14.
Garden club president Margie Hubbard will provide greenhouse-grown vegetables, including Northern Exposure and strawberry tomatoes, as well as several flower varieties.
Proceeds from the sale are used for club projects that benefit the McDonald community, including the Arbor Day planting of trees in the McDonald Cemetery.
The club also plants the downtown barrels, which will be planted after the fundraiser sale. This year, the club is focusing on “from the garden to the table”, so the barrel plantings will include some herbs and edible items for McDonald residents to be able to harvest.
Other projects include litter control and tending the landscape at the city’s gazebo area and welcome to McDonald sign.
