Rotary Breaks Ground for Plaza

GROUND BREAKING: Centennial Committee co-chair Tim Colwell, Rotary of Tulsa president Phil Lakin, and past president and Centennial Committee co-chair Bob Lengacher proudly break ground on Rotary of Tulsa’s $1 Million project at downtown Tulsa’s Williams Center Green.

After three years of site negotiations and fundraising, the Rotary Club of Tulsa broke ground on a $1 million “front door” for the people of Tulsa. This 90-foot circumference greeting people to the Williams Center Green utilizes granite and recycled brick from the existing location. The centerpiece features bronze sculptures by noted Tulsa artists Jay O’Meilia and David Nunnely, recognizing the role of volunteerism, which is at the heart of Rotary. Rotary Plaza plans also include trees, an irrigation system and dramatic nighttime lighting.

This largest undertaking in Rotary Club of Tulsa’s history will be the pinnacle of recognizing the club’s 100-year anniversary set for 2015. President Phil Lakin says the ground breaking, “…is a milestone event in the 98-year history of our club. We are pleased to start construction and look forward to the dedication this fall.”

Rotary Plaza will be located on the southwest corner of the Williams Center Green, along Third Street, midway between Main and Boston.
