The Eastern Oklahoma section of the MBCA will be heading to Claremore, Oklahoma, on Saturday, July 17, 2021, to visit the Will Rogers Memorial Museum and have lunch at J. Farley’s Pub. This is a joint mixer event with our friends in the Ozark section.

 Will Rogers was America’s cowboy philosopher. He was born William Penn Adair Rogers on November 4, 1879, in a log-walled, seven-room house along the Verdigris River, on an Indian reservation in what is now Oklahoma.  This was later called Oologah.  The incredible museum stands on the top of the hill in Claremore, Oklahoma, in his honor.  You can also drive to Oologah to visit the birthplace ranch, 9501 E. 380 Road, Oologah, Oklahoma.

 Prior to visiting the museum, we will have lunch at J. Farley’s Pub at 11:30 a.m. The pub was established by Chris Hayes and James Franklin in memory of their dear friend and fire fighter, Jason Farley, who lost his life in a flood while on duty.  This pub has an array of great dishes to choose from.  Their private room has been reserved for us.

The Eastern Oklahoma section will meet at Jackie Cooper Mercedes Benz  at 10:30 and drive together for the luncheon.  Those wishing to drive directly from your home are welcome to meet us at J. Farley’s.
