Oklahoma Farm Bureau Plans Dedication of Commemorative Courtyard

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 12:28:28 CST

Oklahoma Farm Bureau Plans Dedication of Commemorative Courtyard Oklahoma Farm Bureau is celebrating the organization’s 75th anniversary in 2017. To commemorate this milestone, OKFB is dedicating a new plaza Tuesday, March 7, at 12 p.m. The ceremony will take place on the southeast side of the home office after the adjournment of the Legislative Leadership Conference. Members will enjoy a short presentation followed by a light lunch and refreshments.   

With 95,000 members statewide, Oklahoma Farm Bureau is connected to County Farm Bureaus in all 77 Oklahoma counties. Designed by an Oklahoma-based architecture firm, the courtyard will contain 77 pillar sculptures, each one in the shape of one of the state’s counties. Each sculpture will also contain soil from the county it represents. There is also an elevation change in the four planting beds which represent four quadrants of Oklahoma per the geography elevation map. The elevation changes start in NW Oklahoma at Black Mesa, the highest point in Oklahoma at 4,975 and ends at the Little River located by the Arkansas border at 289’ above sea level.

The courtyard also contains pavers which were bought and engraved by employees, families, organizations and companies associated with and trusted by OKFB.

“The new plaza is beautiful, but my favorite thing about it is the connection it makes between Oklahoma Farm Bureau and our members across all 77 counties,” said Tom Buchanan, OKFB president. “This is a tribute to their dedication to the farming and ranching lifestyle that provides the food, fiber and fuel that powers Oklahomans’ lives. We look forward to our next 75 years of serving them.”
