Oskee-Wow-Wow Question?
Maybe some viewers can help me answer this for Robert?
I thought Collinsville’s fight song was Oskee-Wow-Wow, but Illinois uses that song and I don’t recall Collinsville’s sounding like that. Am I wrong on this?

4-H Needs 100 ...
Do you happen to have a drawer full of old cell phones? A closet full of clothes you don't wear? Piles of newspaper and junk mail lying around the house? Do you trip over old ratty tennis shoes that you should get rid of?

Well the Collinsville Dairy Capitol 4-H Club needs help and if you answered yes to even one of the above questions you can help out!

On Saturday June 16 from noon to 5 pm at the American Legion Parking lot (9th and Main in Collinsville), the Dairy Capitol will be collecting cell phones, clothing, shoes and papers for the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Project. This is a community service project sponsered by Tulsa County 4-H, and in keeping with Oklahoma's Centennial year, the 4-Her's are collecting 100 of everything, 100 cell phones, 100 pounds of paper (to be donated to the Collinsville Library), 100 pounds of clothing (to be donated to AmVets) and 100 pairs of tennis shoes.

The Dairy Capitol kicked off their "100" campaign by originally setting out to clean 100 lockers at the Collinsville Highschool, 100 lockers turned into 602 and the bar was set-if we can over acheive on the lockers, we can over acheive on the collection of 100 items too! So please help us out and bring your unwanted items to the American Legion Building this Saturday, June 16 from noon to 5 pm.

Thanks Everyone!
Deb Lutz, Dairy Capitol 4-H Leader

P.S. We will also be collecting money to purchase flowers (Red Zinnias) to plant around Collinsville, we had a table at the Hogs and Hot Rods show and let people vote on 5 flowers, with the flower recieving the most votes to be designated as Collinsville's City Flower, the Red Zinnia won, and now we would like to plant them in areas around the city. Of course we are aiming to plant a minimum of 100, and this will be our final "100" item.
