AFR women are invited to attend the annual AFR Women’s Conference-Weekend in the Springs, August 11th and 12th in Sulphur, Okla.  The historic Artesian Hotel, located in downtown Sulphur, is the headquarters for this fun and educational conference.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to experience a relaxing weekend in beautiful south central Oklahoma for our conference,” said Pam Livingston, AFR Women’s Cooperative chair. “Our goal is to educate, motivate and inspire women.”

Conference highlights include a tour of the Chickasaw Cultural Center, Stomp Dance demonstration and meals featuring local cuisine. There will also be time to visit local shops in historic downtown Sulphur before concluding the evening at the Artesian Hotel.

The original Artesian Hotel, built in 1906, was a regular getaway for celebrities, politicians and trendsetting tourists. A 1962 fire destroyed the building but not the concept. Today, the new and improved hotel features unique shops, fine dining and indoor bath house and pools taking advantage of the area’s natural springs.

The Chickasaw Cultural Center, located in the Arbuckle Mountains, is a world-class museum focused on the Chickasaw history and culture. The center includes an amphitheater, sky terrace, traditional village and interactive exhibits.

Livingston notes adventure and fun awaits participants at this year’s conference, but it’s just one of the many opportunities of the AFR Women’s Cooperative.

“Our mission is to build community involvement by offering initiatives and educational opportunities to AFR members,” Livingston said.
