On The Bricks

June 8, 2018

It is time for me to catch up on giving you dates and times of some wonderful things happening in our community. Don’t want you to miss the chance to take part and make new friends!
We have a mob hitting the new health food store at 1001 N. Main. By His Hands is owned by Molly Scott and we’re going to cash mob her at 5:30 on Mon., June 11. We would love to have you join us, if you want. It’s about 30 minutes where we go and say hi, look around, and the mobsters promise to spend at least $20. It’s time to get with friends and to support a new business in town.
Right after you participate in the Cash Mob, you can drive over to the Guymon Public Library and attend the Healthy Life: Positivity lecture from 6 – 7 pm. There is no doubt that we can’t all be reminded to toss those pity part invitations and lighten up. I read a card (they’re at SPC WOW Boutique) that said, “You’re invited to my pity party. I’m registered at the liquor store.” I thought it was hilarious.
Here’s a little quote that speaks truth, “Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.” Words said by Don Miguel Ruiz. That sort of goes along with the positivity theme.
The noon hour on Tues., June 12, has two options. You can run by the PTCI North location on Main Street for the Coop Connections and partake of some free lunch and a drawing for $100. Yeah, that’s hard to beat.
Or you can spend your lunch hour at the Fire Station listening to Charles White with State Farm Insurance explain a social media application that is available, at no cost, to businesses (whether they have State Farm insurance or not). This is a Lunch and Learn and you get to buy your own meal at this one. You can brown bag it or order from Round Top and we’re going to have it delivered. If you want more information on that, call Melyn at 338-6246.
Still on the 12th, after work you should consider attending the Spaghetti Dinner, a fund raiser for the Guymon Swim Team that takes place at the Methodist Church Enrichment Center at 6th and Quinn. The tickets are $10 each and you can request to-go plates.
“If you want to know how far gossip travels, do this – take a feather pillow up on a roof, slice it open, and let the feathers fly away on the wind. Then go and find every single feather and re – stuff the pillow.” Rebecca Pidgeon made that wise comparison.
There are a couple of things happening on Sat., June 16. Starting at 5 pm is the St. Peter’s Catholic Church Kermess Mexicana event where you can find games and delicious Mexican food on the church parking lot. There’s music, too.
And at the Pub on the Bricks, 5th and Ellison, is the Pub Fest, also starting at 5 pm. They have a Beer Mile Run, a Root Beer Run, games, and free food happening there.
Lots of fun going on in Guymon.
Brian Koslow advised, “Never make negative comments or spread rumors about anyone. It depreciates their reputation and yours.”
Folk Music with Charla Lewis is the topic at the Guymon Public Library on Mon., June 18, at 6 pm.
Then next evening, also at the library, is a free movie (great for teens) called “1 Way Up” that is about BMX racers. That happens from 4 – 5 in the evening and everyone is invited.
“Gossip is a very dangerous tool,” said John Lydon. “We should be more wary of the gossiper, and not the gossip they’re trying to relay to you.”
OK, there is a lot going on at the YMCA. You need to be aware of a Sunday evening Co – Ed Flag Football, Wednesday evening Women’s Volleyball, Teen Nights at the Y on July 13, 20, 27, and Aug. 3.
I have probably gone on for too long … don’t want to run way past everyone’s attention span. Hope June is a blessed month for each and every one of you. And know that we want you to attend any of the above activities that might interest you. Step out and try something new!
See you on the bricks.
