Park Tavern Under New Ownership

Jeannette and Bill Patty, Penny and Tom Zynda have ended their ownership of the Park Tavern. They have been running the Tavern since 1997 and have built its reputation as being a welcoming place of fun and camaraderie. They are pleased to see the new owners step in and call it their own. We (the town of Medicine Park), the hundreds of visitors that frequented from Oklahoma and beyond and musicians who played there are most thankful their hospitality.

The Park Tavern will open up Friday Night (3 July) under new ownership (McBride Family). These are REALLY nice folks! Everyone is looking forward to well established Park Tavern continuing to be a cool place to hang out.  
Come out, grab a cold one and introduce yourselves to the McBride Family!!
I see a new watering hole for Citizens, Friends and neighbors of Medicine Park.....hope we can park all the cars!!

The Red Dirt Ball • May 22 thru 24

The Red Dirt Ball • May 22 - 24 

Come and you'll be in for a whole lot of good music and fun!

Hard to believe this is the 6th Red Dirt Ball! I've been to all and it never disappoints. This year there is 5 different stages with music. I recommend you print out the schedule or have it on your smart phones. 

You can't miss that it is FREE! NO ice chests or coolers will be allowed. There are plenty of reasonably priced venders. Parking can found off of HWY 49. With golf cart transport if you need it. (It is 1/4 mile from the stage). If you want a comfortable seat I suggest you bring your own lawn chairs otherwise it is standing room or a few empty benches. "Sleep Inn" is offering special rates and shuttle to and from.

Hank Sabine's Memorial service will take place

Thursday at 7 PM at the Medicine Park Community Center, 19001 HWY 49, Medicine Park, OK 

Hank Sabine far right playing a deputy in the Medicine Park Marauders
Hank Sabine has been friend and resident of Medicine Park since he and his wife Lee purchased a home here in 2002 permanently residing since 2006. Hank was no stranger to the Park being born in Lawton Oklahoma attended Lawton public schools and graduated from Cameron University. His family tree harkened back to the early years of Medicine Park.

To his neighbors and friends of Medicine Park he was often the one who gave them the friendly greeting of the day. He was active in the community from the fun and frolic of Medicine Park Marauders, to serving important roles as chairperson of MP Planning and Preservation to a City Trustee. He and Lee welcomed friends to their home. They helped however the could.

Hank and his friendly and generous ways will be missed greatly by the community of Medicine Park.  Fellow Parkies send their sincere sympathy to Lee Sabine and his family. For more about Hank here is a link to the Lawton Constitution.
