Capitol Building Birthday Ceremony

The Oklahoma State Capitol is turning 100 years old, and we want to be there to help celebrate! We think it's important that a bunch of regular folks be at the ceremony and sign the guest book. It's like attending a birthday party and signing a group birthday card!

Meet us (and a bunch of other people) in the 4th floor rotunda of the State Capitol around 1pm to view the time capsule and sign the guest book. Ceremony will start at 2pm and last about 30 minutes.

Don't forget to wear your red LFT buttons! Maybe we can take a group pic in front of the time capsule?

From the state's press release

The governor will host a public ceremony commemorating the centennial. This ceremony will highlight a time capsule, which is planned to be opened 100 years from now and preserved within the newly renovated lower level of the Capitol in the interim. Artifacts donated to the time capsule will be displayed in the Capitol’s 4th floor rotunda on Monday, June 26, starting at 1 pm and the ceremony will be held at 2 pm.  

Other items to commemorate the building’s 100th birthday include commissioning a painting of the Capitol that will hang in the Capitol upon completion, a guest book for Oklahomans to sign and offer thoughts and hopes for the next 100 years that will be included in the time capsule, and flying at the Capitol for two weeks, starting June 19, the original state flag that was in use when the Capitol was built. Relatedly, OETA will be re-broadcasting its special program on the Capitol building, “Stateline: Oklahoma Rising”, at 7 pm on Thursday, June 29th.
