Will Rogers Memorial Museum Ropers will be joined by others to host a public reception Thursday, Aug. 21, honoring Steve and Helen Gragert. It will be 5-7 p.m. at the Memorial. There will be punch, cake and hors d’oeuvres with a brief program at 6 p.m
Gragert will retire Sept. 1, ending almost 40 years association with Will Rogers and the Museums, serving since 2006 as director.
He and his wife, Helen, have been active in the Rogers County community, involved in Reveille Rotary, Claremore Friends of the Library and Claremore Symphony League as well as others.
Everyone who has been touched by the Gragerts’ hospitality and generosity of time and talents is invited to join in the farewell celebration.
