Guest speaker for the occasion is Dr. Bob Blackburn, executive director of the Oklahoma Historical Society. The Oklahoma division has 21 camps across the state and over 300 members. A tent, chairs, bottled water and portable facilities will be furnished and attendees are encouraged to dress comfortably to deal with hot temperatures expected.
