Celebrate Freedom, A Tribute To Our Military

 

Celebrate Freedom is an event to honor our military. The evening will include presentation of the colors by a Buffalo Soldiers color guard, greetings from Lawton Mayor Fred Fitch and other distinguished guests, video tributes and testimonies.

The event is co-directed by Mike Neff at Lawton First Baptist Church, Steve Holt at Cameron Baptist, Harry Ross at Lawton First Baptist East and Doug Snook at Lawton First Baptist West.

It is hoped that this will be the first in what will become an annual event to express the deep gratitude that the Lawton-Fort Sill community has for all who are serving or have served our country through our military.

  •  Presented by churches in the Comanche-Cotton Baptist Association
  •  Thursday, June 27, 7 p.m., McMahon Auditorium, 801 NW Ferris Avenue.
