IRS SCAM: is one of the scams now prevalent in the area. Please remember to never give out any important information or numbers over the phone, ever. Ask for a call-back number and seek advice from a trusted individual before answering any questions. If the caller is threatening or pushy in any way, just hang-up. Hanging up is not bad manners; it is protecting yourself against scams.

NOTICE: The Barber County Sheriff's Office is asking that if you need fingerprinted for Concealed Carry, Teacher, or for any other reason, please do not fill out the fingerprint card. 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.

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.

STAN REIMER PHOTOGRAPHY: Proofs of pictures taken by the now retired Stan Reimer over the years can be viewed at the Lincoln Library during their business hours.

Holiday fundraiser for
the Stockade Museum
The staff and Board of the Medicine Lodge Stockade Museum are planning a fundraiser and they are asking for help from individuals and groups in the community. They need wreaths to auction off at a silent auction that will take place on December 5, 2015.
These wreaths can be made out of natural materials, artificial, or a combination with the outside measurement being approximately 24 inches. Those using natural materials must keep in mind that the wreaths need to maintain a quality look through December 25th.
Everyone in the community will be invited to start bidding at the Silent Auction Wreath Event between the dates of November 22nd and December 4th. The top bidders will be announced at the Festival of Wreaths Event on December 5th at 3:30 p.m. Bid winners will then be able to take their wreaths home to deck their halls. All proceeds will benefit the Stockade Museum.
Wreaths should be brought to the museum no later than Saturday, November 21, 2015 anytime during the hours of 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. seven days a week. If a special drop off time is needed, contact the Stockade Museum at (620) 886-3553.
