Stay out of jail — wear that button!
This year the ‘89er Committee is continuing one of the favorite traditions of past ‘89er Celebrations —- jail time for not wearing “The Button”.
Stacey Frazier, Chairwoman of the “Stay Out of Jail” venue explains it best, “We are hoping to have a great amount of fun, raise a little money to help defray the costs of the various ‘89er events, and bring back a little bit of history”.
Celebration Week will see a number of specially deputized marshals “arresting” individuals who are not wearing the ‘89er Button. The marshals will also be serving warrants drawn up by friends and family on very serious charges such as “not eating all your brussel sprouts” or “being too nice to too many people”. There may even be some special “sentencing” accomplished by special judges including the Territorial Governor, Her Honor Betty Foster.
Stacey went on to say “There will also be the possibility of purchasing a “Get Out of Jail” card, if you want further insurance against any jail time.”
The processing of a warrant, the assignment of a “court date and time” and of course the results of the sentencing will be followed on http://www.LoganCountyCourier.com, and http://www.GuthrieNewsPage.com as well as face book at “89er days”.
Warrants may be purchased at the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce: $2 for a basic warrant; $5 for a warrant and photo (to be seen on face book); and $10 for the entire process including the sentencing. In addition to the warrants, “get out of jail free” tickets may also be purchased the Chamber offices.
Stacey concluded, “We promise “jail time” will be exciting —- but do not try to do this at home!”
