#RideTheAlleys

ROAD SAFETY for bicycles: separate bicycles from cars in space and time.
In Guymon, this can be possible by cycling in the alleys. Did you know that the alley in between Academy St and James Sts goes from SW 2nd St to 24th St and it connects the middle school and the high school?
It ends at Walmart on 24th St.
Try it with your kids this summer, they might want to cycle to school in the fall.

Oklahoma Panhandle Partners was founded with the desire to address the needs of cancer patients and their families in the Oklahoma Panhandle. Guymon Community Enrichment Foundation has given us the ability to do what we do while they take care of the business aspect of our operations. They also enable us to maintain a 501c3 charitable status. Their smiles and advice are great encouragement as we enter our ninth year of existence. Together, we hope to help meet the financial and cancer support needs of our growing community.

Before the Guymon Community Enrichment Foundation, the Guymon Firefighter’s Club took care of our own financials. The club…talked about obtaining our 501(c)(3) status, but determined it was not in our best interest when the GCEF option was made known to us. The GCEF took all of the burden out of making the transition and allows us to operate smoothly, efficiently and legally, all of which are important to us. The GCEF is a great asset to those who are looking at or already have clubs that would like to be tax exempt.

Christmas Cheer for Children

Benefitting children in Beaver, Cimarron and Texas Counties.

When I started this project in 2011, I didn’t dream it would grow so quickly.. I reached out to the Guymon Community Enrichment Foundation for help. Partnering with the GCEF enabled us to receive donations as a 501(c)3 from corporations too. We are able to reach more families and children.
