The annual 4th of July party for the S.OKC Rotary Club will actually be held on Friday, July 3rd this year beginning at 7pm.
As always it will be held at Grady Grandstaff’s beautiful 17 acres in Newcastle.
Grady and his family do an old fashioned fish fry and hotdogs.
All you need to bring is your own drinks and lawn chairs.
Food lasts until it runs out, so if you’re hungry be there on time.
At dusk Grady launches a firework show that rivals downtown OKC’s. this is one of our club socials for the year, so it counts as a makeup. You’re welcome to bring guests and the whole family. Grady pays for the entire event, so please express your gratitude to him as it is an amazing gift to the club membership.

They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article.

Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...
