Chamber to hold its annual Fly-In in March
The Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce's annual Washington, D.C., Fly-In is scheduled for March 14 and 15.
The chamber will organize a group of approximately 30 local people to travel to the nation's capital to meet with federal legislators, representatives from the Army and agency officials.
Highlights of the event include a reception in the Mike Mansfield Room at the U.S. Capitol for Lawtonians to meet with legislators and their staffs and a breakfast featuring U.S. Sen. James Inhofe and Pentagon leaders.
"This is an opportunity that is rare and valuable to our community," said Jamie Southerland, the chamber's interim president and CEO.
