JOIN US FOR A NIGHT OF CELEBRATION
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Is Turning 50
Founded on April 9, 1965, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB). From its earliest days steadfast supporters of this organization and its mission to enhance the natural beauty of our great state have guided us to success. In recognition of this milestone and all that they have contributed to the success and longevity of Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, we will present the Pendleton Woods Award to Governor and Mrs. George & Donna Nigh and posthumously to Governor and Mrs. Henry & Shirley Bellmon at a 50th anniversary reception celebration on April 21, 2015.
Named in memory of a longtime supporter and advocate for Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, this award recognizes those individuals whose vision, dedication, and support nurtured this organization in its early years and ensured that it would succeed and serve the citizens of our state.
In its first two decades, Keep Oklahoma Beautiful was only able to survive because of the direct support of the Governor’s Office, their support during those crucial, early years allowed KOB to build the solid foundation on which we’ve grown. Today, KOB serves more communities around our state than ever before, and much of the credit for that success goes to our early supporters.
Many distinguished individuals will be in attendance including former Governors and Secretaries of Environment.
Tickets to attend the event are available for purchase on KOB’s website. The event will begin with a reception 7:00 pm and the short, formal award presentation will follow about 8:00pm.
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful’s mission is to empower Oklahoma citizens to preserve and enhance the state's natural beauty and ensure a healthy, sustainable environment.
