Tulsa Rotary’s First 100 Years

In 2015, the club celebrated its first 100 years since its charter in 1915. As its official centennial project, the Rotary Club of Tulsa dedicated a $1 million gift of public art on Williams Center Green. Five bronze sculptures by noted artists Jay O’Meilia and David Nunneley reside on a granite plaza, located at 3rd and Boston. The pieces reflect the role of Rotary in Tulsa and around the world and serve as a downtown gathering place during lunch times and downtown festivals. The centennial celebration included the book Celebrate! 100 Years of Rotary Tulsa by Rotarians Jerry Cornelius and Tim Colwell, a Rotary Centennial Salute video by Tulsa historian and videographer Jack Frank, and a Centennial Gala, featuring honored guest, Rotary notables and superlative entertainment.
