WHISTLE .STOP BOWYER'S GARAGE .5474100 MT#0 Communication means "to make common by imparting, sharing,.and passing along." The town meeting project which calls for 100 commu- nities to participate in local town meetings on March 26, 1977, will, perhaps, create a new togetherness for small communities. President of the Board of Trustees said, "During the 1976 Bicenten- nial celebration 26 Oklahoma communities organized town meetings. Citizen participa- tion was a new experience for many who attended and a new community spirit was the result," committee presi- dent added. "This year with nearly 250 gatherings, the opportunity will again be made available to Oklaho- mans everywhere." If communication break- downs can create awkward- ness and thoughtlessness between members of a family or friends, even a nation, how often, then, this can happen in small com- munities or towns. Clement Atlee said, "The people of the worlds are islands, shouting at one another over seas of misunderstanding." Direct citizen involvement through town meetings can become a social instrument "in creating the new fiber of our social fabric." Communication is dialo- gue. The words, community and communication, have much in common. The town meeting calls for business- community dialogue. Thus it can be a method to bring the consumer and businessman together, build mutual re- spect, and develop health and pride in both sectors, the town meeting committees feel. The small town has much to offer the community. In the words of Thomas Wolfe, "Men are strangers. They are lonely, forsaken, exiled on this earth. They are born, live, and die alone," many times in the larger cities. Thus, the exodus to town and country for a new quality of life, a new burst of self-confidence, a new sense of responsibility, and a new, realistic hope in the future. The small town dare not ignore this challenge to growth. The Perkins Town Meet- ing schedule is structured along the suggested outline for other Oklahoma towns as follows: 12:30--Hosting: Coffee and doughnuts as commu- nity gather. l:00--Welcome: Commu- nity Sing-Patty Johnson. l:30--"The New Commu- nity and Town Meeting" ll/ Town Meeting Volunteer. 1:45--Workshop: "The Challenges Facing Our Com- munity". 3:IS--Coffee Break: Com- munity Photo Display 3:30--"The New Citizen" Town Meeting Vollmteer. 3:45--Workshop: "The Proposals for Our Town" A time to brainstorm ideas for the future of Perkins and plan proposals for future action.

Businessmen met Thurs. day with Galen Holsinger and Deimar Niles to discuss town meeting plans. A Senior Citizens program was presented Monday night at the Center in regard to their participation and contribu- tion to the town meeting. In the Town Meeting 100, the community gathers, faces its challenges, and the participants respond and propose a practical vision of operation through respon- sible citizenship, business expansion, and community development.
