THINGS TO DO

Monday, October 22, 2018, 6:16 AM

The Cherokee Nation donated $10,000 to the town of Okay to help with the construction of a new basketball court at the community’s first park.

Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. and Tribal Councilor Rex Jordan presented the check to town officials late last week and also viewed the new playground equipment the town recently installed at Mustang Park.

Okay Preservation Committee President Johnny Walker said the new park adds another source of pride to the small town in Wagoner County as well as provides a nice recreational area for its youth.

“What this park means to the community of Okay is two things, number one is that we are proud of our community and number two is health and wellness for our children, and we appreciate the Cherokee Nation for making that possible,” Walker said.
