Coyote Coupon Books? Not this season
Connie Riter

After so many years of having a successful sale, Leslie has decided not to offer these discount restaurants and other coupons. We were one of only a few parks who sold all their books last year! The economy, the covid virus, the restaurant owners not willing to risk another poor season, and other factors contributed to her decision. Thanks to all who bought one of the books last season and we will let you know if she decides to have one available for 2022-2023.

Here it is, October 2011, the 10th month of the year and only 3 months away from 2012. Wow, where does the time go? It doesn"t seem that long ago, when the year 2000 was coming and everyone thought the end of the world might happen with all the computers that were going to shut down. Oh well, here we are, almost 12 years later and computers are still working just fine (well, most of the time anyway). When we think of October, we usually remember the major events Oktoberfest, Columbus Day, Yom Kippur, Thanksgiving Day in Canada, and of course the big one, Halloween. Some of the other special events you may or may not know about: A few month long events: National Apple Month, National Clock Month, National Dessert Month, National Pizza Month (my favorite) and National Popcorn Popping Month (another favorite) October 2, 1950 First Peanuts Cartoon Strip published October 4th National Golf Day (wow, another favorite) October 7, 1957 American Bandstand premiered October 15th National Grouch Day and National Poetry Day (who put these together?) October 19, 1814 Star Spangled Banner first sung (I know some of you remember this) October 20, 1931 Mickey Mantle born - Spavinaw, Oklahoma October 22nd National Nut Day (need I say more) October 26, 1863 International Red Cross Organized - Geneva, Switzerland October 27, 1858 Theodore Roosevelt born – New York City October 29, 1966 National Organization of Women Founded October 30, 1735 John Adams born – Braintree, Massachusetts One of the other major events in October is the Baseball World Series and who could forget Reggie Jackson"s three home runs (on the very first pitch of 3 different innings with 3 different pitchers) in Game 6 on October 18, 1977. The Yankees went on to beat the Los Angeles Dodg.ers 4 games to 2. That"s why he was nicknamed “Mr. October”. There"s a lot of other stuff going on in October but I hope you enjoyed some of this trivia.
