Tips to Make the Most of Your Time in Downtown OKC


Do you live or work in downtown Oklahoma City? Want to get involved but don’t know where to start? Here are 4 tips from local innovators for making the most of your time downtown.

Get involved in your local Rotary Club

Downtown: With over 600 members, Club 29 is the largest Club in Rotary International.

Midtown: The OKC Midtown Rotary Club was chartered in 2009 with the goal of involving younger professionals in the service, fellowship and ideals of Rotary International. The club takes a hands-on approach to address challenging and worthwhile community needs both locally and internationally. They seek candidates who want to shake up and rewrite what it means to be a Rotarian in this day and age.

Bricktown: The Bricktown Rotary Club is comprised of younger professionals who are committed to our community, to the ideals of Rotary and to one another. As one of the original “happy hour” clubs, they are trendsetters as well. They are always looking for new ideas and new members. 

Exchange:  Exchange Rotary became the newest Rotary club in the Oklahoma City Metro in April 2017. Exchange believes education is a basic right to every person, here and abroad, and will be focusing efforts to support that belief through hands-on service and grant projects.

  • Meetings: First and Third Wednesdays of each month 12:00pm at DC on Film Row
