Saturday, December 13th
32nd and Utica
The Perryman Cemetery, located at 32nd and Utica, is one of two Tulsa-area cemeteries hosting a Wreaths Across America ceremony Saturday, December 13 at 10 a.m. Ceremonies will also take place at a number of cemeteries across the country during this time. The Tulsa Historical Society, owner of the cemetery property, is working with local chapters of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) to present the ceremony. The Perryman Cemetery is Tulsa’s oldest private cemetery and the historic resting place of Creek Native American soldiers who fought in the Civil War. Notably, one grave belongs to a Creek Chief, Legus Perryman, who served in the war. Please join us during the ceremony as we honor these veterans during a special time of remembrance.
Started at the Arlington National Cemetery in 1992 by Maine wreath store owner, Morrill Worcester, Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization that coordinates annual wreath laying ceremonies at the graves of veterans across the U.S. Funded solely by donations, the ceremonies serve as a way to remember the nation’s heroes during the holiday season.

Through December 6th
Presented by the Tulsa Artists Guild and the Tulsa Historical Society.

“A conversation about our Tulsa River heritage”
Monday, November 17th, 6:30 PM
Featuring former Mayors Robert J. LaFortune and Susan Savage, retired Public Works Director Charles L. Hardt, and author Ann Patton.
Mayor LaFortune wrote the foreword to The Tulsa River, and interviews with Mayor Savage and Mr. Hardt are featured in the book. Speakers will share their stories about growing up in a river town and historic events such as the creation of River Parks and the 1986 flood, as well as their visions for the future.
All will join photographer Vernis Maxell and editor Tracy LeGrand for book signings.
FREE admission, and books will be for sale.
About the book:
The Tulsa River, a new book of stories about Tulsa’s life with the Arkansas River, is available now in a limited first edition. The coffee-table-style book has 110 full-color photographs.
The Tulsa River is a natural and civic history of the river from its beginning millions of years ago in snow packs of the Colorado Rockies, as the river carved its way through the now-buried Tulsa Mountains and found its way to the Mississippi River in Arkansas. The story ends with the promise of A Gathering Place and River Parks, with Tulsans describing their diverse ideas for the future.
Author Ann Patton
“The Tulsa River tells the story of our city’s struggle to live in harmony with our river, which lured mankind to this spot on earth, shaped our town, occasionally terrorized and often sustained us, and promises to gather our diverse peoples together,” Patton said. “We spent two years living with and learning about our river, and the more we learned, the more there was to explore and understand. This book is, simply, a labor of love for our river and our community.”
