Fireside Chat With Oklahoma’s Governors to Benefit Oklahoma Territorial Museum

GUTHRIE, Okla. — The Guthrie Scottish Rite Masonic Center will host a fireside chat with Oklahoma’s governors on Thursday, October 5, at 10 a.m. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Oklahoma Territorial Museum in Guthrie, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023.

Invited guests include Governor Kevin Stitt and former governors Mary Fallin, Brad Henry, Frank Keating, David Walters, and George Nigh. The Fireside Chat is a unique chance for Oklahomans to learn how our state government works while interacting with past and present leaders. In the presence of several former governors, the audience will be given the chance to ask questions while hearing first-hand perspectives of those who led the state.

The Guthrie Scottish Rite Masonic Center, with its grand architecture, adds a fitting backdrop to this historic event. Its grandeur will only be enhanced by the talents of the Oklahoma City Philharmonic with Music Director Alexander Mickelthwate.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online. Guests can submit questions in advance on the Oklahoma Territorial Museum’s Facebook and Instagram pages or by emailing erin.brown@history.ok.gov. For more information, please call 405-282-1889.

The event is sponsored by the Samuel King chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
