WPLS sets summer activities

With summer on the horizon, the Western Plains Library System (WPLS) is gearing up to host its annual Summer Reading Program to encourage reading for students over the summer break.

With Clinton’s strong reputation hosting the OK Kids State Coach Pitch Baseball Tournament, it will soon see another big tournament this summer that organizers say has the potential to be even bigger: the OK Kids State Coach Pitch Softball Tournament.

With Memorial Day on Monday, both Clinton Cemetery and Stafford Cemetery will host Memorial Day services which are free and open to the public.
