May 20 to bring several community events

MOORE — Several activities are planned for the one year May 20 tornado anniversary.

A Moore Community Remembrance Ceremony will be 10 a.m. May 20 and will include a groundbreaking ceremony of the Moore Medical Center, 700 S. Telephone Road.

The City of Moore, in partnership with Norman Regional Health System, will host the event that will include a visit from Gov. Mary Fallin. Also speaking at the ceremony will be Moore city leaders and Health System officials who will address the progress made since last year’s deadly and devastating tornado.

The program will begin by paying tribute to those lost on May 20.

The ceremony will be held on the former Moore Medical Center site. Those attending are asked to use the I-35 Service Road entering on 6th Street following the signs for parking.

Other activities include:

· A Moore Recovery Celebration will be from 4-7 p.m. May 20 at Veterans Park, 1900 SE 4th St.

The event will recognize the hard work of the residents of Moore, and beyond, to rebuild the community. There will be food, inflatables and live performances from Katy Tiz, New Hollow and special guests.

· Brown-O’Haver, 220 SE 19th St., will offer a customer appreciation day from 2-6 p.m. May 20.

The event will offer free food and drinks. Arrow Fence and Shelter will hold a drawing for a free storm shelter. Jim Traber with The Sports Animal will broadcast live.

To RSVP, call Jennifer Seals at 735-5510.

· The Oklahoma Strong Run is part of May’s Monumental Celebration of Community, with proceeds benefiting the Oklahoma Strong Monument that will be placed in the new park in central Moore. The run will begin at 8 a.m. May 17.

The Monument, inspired by the coming together of community during the 2013 disasters, is a celebration of the resilience, character and courage that has made Oklahoma strong.
