Sue Roy, of Newkirk Main Street, is being honored in the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful “Volunteer Spotlight” during February.
For the past 15 years, Sue has given her time and talent to the Newkirk Main Street program. In 2009, she volunteered more than 616 hours, much of it devoted to recycling. One of her many projects is collecting aluminum cans, selling them and then donating the proceeds to the Hole in the Wall park. With these funds, the Newkirk Main Street program has been able to purchase tools and trees and have a water faucet installed.
Recognizing that there was a need to recycle in Newkirk but with no recycling program in the city, Sue organized a group of women who take turns driving recyclables to either Ponca City or Arkansas City - communities that have such programs were the materials can be sold.
Aside from her recycling efforts, Sue is also a dedicated main street design committee member. From painting banners for the light poles in downtown to planting flowers in the pocket parks throughout downtown, Sue has demonstrated her dedication to the beautification of Newkirk.
