Annual Celebration 2018




One of the chamber’s biggest events of the year, our Annual Celebration is where we recognize the contributions to our volunteers. A wrap-up of the previous year is given by the outgoing chair and a vision of the future is given by the incoming chair. Awards are given out for Shelia O. Lee Volunteer of the Year, Wayne Gilley Award, Business of the Year, Rising Star Award, Lifetime Achievement Award, Community Spirit Award, Young Professional of the Year, Redcoat Rookie of the Year and Redcoat of the Year.

This event is June 29, 2018 at the Apache Casino Hotel.

Following the Annual Celebration, the chamber will host a Community Concert featuring Yellow Rose Dinner Theatre performing "Motown Magic." The show is inspired by the Motown sound that became popular in the 1960s. Motown is the combination of soul music with a distinct pop influence that inspired Barry Gordy to found Motown records in Detroit, Michigan on April 14, 1960. For the past eight years, audiences at the Yellow Rose theater have been raving about how James Morris, D. Hill, Darryl Moss and Dario Moss have brought back to life groups such as the The Temptations and the Four Tops and the Spinners. They even pay honor to the likes of Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. Tasha Sanders blows crowds away with her powerful vocals that includes songs like "Please Mr. Postman" and "My Guy." You do not want to miss the special show inspired by a special brand of music. The Community Concert will begin at 8:30 p.m. June 29 at the Apache Casino Hotel after the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce's Annual Celebration. To learn more about Yellow Rose Dinner Theatre, visit its website.
