May Social Speakers: Anna Mains and OKC Volunteers

We had an excellent turnout at the May social, nearly 30 people! Thanks to all that came, but in particular thanks to our speakers. Anna Mains, owner of Dekora, talked about her vision and the origins of the Dekora brand. It was very informative! Watch the video below.

Also, Cayla Lewis, Executive Director of the Plaza District, introduced us to her new initiative, OKC Volunteers.

If you’d like to get more involved with getting involved, find OKC Volunteers on Facebook and Twitter, but most importantly, subscribe to their mailing list to get updates on volunteering opportunities near you!

March Social at Revolucion

Join your neighbors along our western boundary in the up-and-coming SoSA neighborhood of OKC at ¡Revolución! Taqueria & Cantina — a taco and tequila focused, high-energy, late-night eats & drinks destination.

Driven by authentic Mexican ingredients and preparation methods, the concept thrives on innovative, playful cocktails around the 24-seat island bar and the perfect party-style patio to imbibe and indulge ’til your heart’s content.
