According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 3,000 people were killed by distracted driving in 2017. Guthrie is working with local school districts to educate students about the dangers of distracted driving and reduce related injuries. The awareness campaign has gained national recognition and has made the streets in our community safer.
Each quarter, Guthrie updates the messages heard when a person calls any Guthrie location. These messages are specific to each location and are approved by the location's leadership. If you are interested in finding out which messages callers will hear for the third quarter at each location, you can view the scripts on the Strategic Planning and Marketing page on the intranet.

The Choraliers are a Guthrie tradition that brings together staff, retirees and trustees to form a holiday choir. The choir has traditionally performed in locations both at Guthrie and area senior citizen communities to bring holiday spirit and entertainment to all. In addition to vocalists, this year the group has added clarinetists, a flautist, a trombonist and percussionists.
