The small community of Medicine Park, at the edge of the Wichita Mountains in southwest Oklahoma, came alive with the roar of Harley Davidson, Honda and Kawasaki motorcycles, June 11, as the AFR Southwest District LEAD committee sponsored a Poker Run and Red Dirt concert. The event was in support of State Question 777, Oklahoma’s Right to Farm.
“This was a demographic the LEAD program had not yet reached to educate on SQ777,” said Bailey Kliewer, SW District LEAD committee chair. Kliewer, who assisted in planning the event, added, the poker run was a great opportunity to inform the public and encourage a “yes” vote on the state question.
This state question is really important to farmers and all Oklahoma communities.
