Oklahoma Farm Bureau broke ground to mark the beginning of the construction of the OKFB 75th Anniversary Commemorative Courtyard May 11.
The courtyard, which will be installed at the OKFB home office in Oklahoma City, will commemorate 75 years of Oklahoma Farm Bureau while highlighting the county Farm Bureaus. The Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation is offering personalized brick pavers to individuals and businesses for a $100 donation. The pavers will provide the foundation for the courtyard. The outdoor space will also include a pillar that will contain soil from each of the 77 Oklahoma counties. The theme for the courtyard is “Bringing generations together by honoring the past and paving the way for the future.”
Ceremony attendees included President Tom Buchanan, Executive Director Monica Wilke, General Manager Gary Buckner, and the nine members of the state board of directors.
