$20,000 matching fund launched to help Weatherford Food and Resource Center

During the past few months, many have been stepping forward to help their neighbors weather unprecedented storms. Clinton’s Bank of the West, along with the law offices of Graft & Walraven, decided to encourage even more of the generosity that western Oklahomans are famous for by matching the donations of anyone who makes a monetary gift to the Weatherford Food and Resource Center (WFRC) before June 30.

To commemorate the day that’s recognized as the one when the last slave was freed in the U.S., June 19, 1865, organizers said the Clinton community is invited to an all-ages “Juneteenth” celebration to be held from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. June 19.

During a brief emergency meeting Wednesday, the Clinton City Council changed the upcoming filing dates for mayor, and Ward 2 and Ward 4 council seats to June 15, 16 and 17.
