“Anytime that we can bring our total community together and just highlight what we have here locally, it’s a great opportunity to just do that," said Brenda Spencer-Ragland, president and CEO of the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce. "We want to know the rich history, the culture of the Lawton Fort Sill community, as well as it’s educational and just fun, build new friends, make new relationships.”
Spencer-Ragland said with Saturday’s heavy turn out, she expects it to be the first of many opportunities to host Frontier Days.
