"Remembering Alyssa" this Saturday

DUNCAN —     “Remembering Alyssa,” a ride and silent auction to commemorate Alyssa Wiles, will hold its inaugural event on Saturday.

    Wiles, who was murdered on June 10, 2013, was a victim of teenage dating violence. “Remembering Alyssa” will raise awareness about dating violence as well as funds for the battered women’s shelter in Duncan.

    The silent auction will be at 8 a.m. in Pirkle Park, behind Fuqua Pool. The poker run will begin around 9 a.m. and is about 90 miles long. The price is $20 for each rider and $5 for each additional hand. A donation luncheon will also be available.

    In addition to the “Remembering Alyssa” program, Randy Gilreath, one of the event’s organizers said they are working to set up a new program in schools to help fight teenage dating violence.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
