~Singers Wanted~
Traditionally there has been a community choir to sing on the Sunday Morning of Peace Treaty at the downtown stage! Most will remember David Nation's preaching (with Carrie's help, of course) as the main attraction, but a lively choir will bless all attendees with a well rehearsed medley of old time gospel songs! Practice will be at the United Methodist Church every Wednesday at 7:30 and anyone who loves to sing is invited to join! Please consider being part of this joyful noise! Come and enjoy the fun and fellowship as we learn to sing "Heaven's Medley"! You will be blessed!

LIONS CLUB CALENDARS: calendar representatives will be delivering calendars in the next few days. If yours is not delivered, it may be picked up at Nixon’s Auction and Realty between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. For further information, call 886-0793.

HATCHET RAFFLE: tickets for Carry Nation hatchets can be purchased at the Medicine Lodge Stockade. The raffle tickets are one for $1.00 donation or six tickets for a $5.00 donation.

The names of the three winners will be drawn at 8:00 Saturday night during the Peace Treaty weekend.

With our new machine we will enter all information needed to fill the card out. The Sheriff's Office does not charge for fingerprinting and the hours for this are 12:00pm-1:00pm and 4:30pm-530pm.

CUB SCOUTS: The Medicine Lodge Lions Club is reforming Cub Scout Pack 227. All boys from first through fifth grade, or between the ages of 7 and 10 years old, and their parents are eligible to join. We anticipate the Pack will form just after the start of school in the fall. For more information contact Brian Withrow at 930-2006 or

Anyone who was not listed on the current calendar may call any Lions Club Member to get their family birthdays and anniversaries listed. Calendars are still $5 each. The calendar usually includes over 500 resident listings and ads of 48 sponsoring businesses. New calendars cover September 2015 thru August 2016 and will be distributed in August. This community fundraiser helps maintain the Lion’s Scout House for Boy Scouts, provides local student scholarships, and supports several eyesight preservation projects.

LEISURE CENTER: The Leisure Center is reaching out to the community to ask for help in delivering meals and driving the bus. One day a week (excluding Saturday and Sunday) is all you would be asked to do. If you feel like you cannot commit to one day a week then sign up as a reserve driver or deliverer. If you should need to be off, someone will fill in. This is a wonderful service for our community and certainly helps people who do not feel like fixing a meal or just can’t because of health reasons. The saying “many hands make light work” certainly applies to this situation. Drivers need a valid driver’s license. Please call 886-3466 if you are interested.

Livestock Water and Fencing Workshop Set for September 8

MCPHERSON, August 13 - Mark Green, NRCS Specialist, from Missouri will return to Kansas to offer his popular workshop on electric fencing and livestock watering options September 8, 2015 in Salina, KS. The workshop will be held at the Salina Ambassador Hotel, 1616 W. Crawford Street. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and program lasts until 4:00 p.m..
Water availability is the number one limiting factor for grazing possibilities. The addition of electric fencing will increase grazing options that can in turn benefit range health, the soil, as well as improve production and profitability.
At the September 8 workshop, Mark Green will demonstrate the latest in electric fence products, the pros and cons of various materials used in electric fence construction and installation techniques. Green will also cover livestock watering topics: water distribution for improved grazing distribution, permanent and portable tanks, above and below ground pipeline, and water sources-wells, streams, springs and ponds.
Producers always enjoy his cowboy humor and expertise from years of experience. Mark states "I believe that folks in my line of work should gather information that works and pass it on to the ranchers I work with. What makes me different is that I am not selling anything; I am sharing the ideas I have seen visiting many ranches. Even little things can make a big difference. I will relay what works; as well as things to avoid in water and fencing."
Mark Green has been with USDA NRCS since 1981. He currently is an instructor and regional coordinator for the SW Missouri Regional Management Intensive Grazing Schools, and has worked with grazing management in SW Missouri for 34 years. He is a member of the American Forage and Grassland Council and is a board member for Missouri Forage and Grassland Council.
Cost for the workshop is $50.00, $40.00 before September 2, and includes lunch and publications on fencing and water development.
Register online at: or for questions contact Mary Howell at or call 785-562-8726.
