SUMMER KICKOFF

Event: Leadership Oklahoma Lawn Party.

Where: Tulsa home of Mayor Dewey and Victoria Bartlett.

What: Around 106 graduates and guests attended this Leadership Oklahoma casual summer fun. LOK is a statewide organization with more than 1,380 graduates from 164 Oklahoma communities. Its mission is to create, inspire and support a dynamic network of leaders.

AMERICA PRIDE

Event: Quail Creek Fourth of July Parade.

Where: Quail Creek Golf & Country Club parking lot to Quail Creek Park.

What: All the red, white and blue bells and whistles, which included Uncle Sam hats, stars, stripes and sparkles on everything wearable, made this annual parade a wonderful bit of American pride expressed by an imaginative, patriotic neighborhood. Throw in the bikes, trikes, wagons, scooters, golf carts, convertibles, vintage cars, riding toys, strollers, trucks and “dudded up” pets, and you have this annual parade led by Oklahoma City Motorcycle Policemen Jimmy Martin and Jerry Bowen. Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts walked behind the Station 15 fire truck, which gave Uncle Sam (Kim Kimberling) a ride on top. Grand marshal for the parade was Mozelle Houser, riding in a convertible. Houser, who moved to Quail Creek in 1962, is the longest neighborhood resident. The Piranha Brothers played at the park, and state Sen. David Holt and state Rep. Randy McDaniel spoke.
