The 2017 Tulsa Zone Fall Fest was held at Christ the Redeemer, Tulsa and hosted by the King of Kings LWML Society, Glenpool on Saturday, September 16. After registration and a continental breakfast provided by Christ the Redeemer Society, Susan Postier, Zone President, welcomed everyone and made a few introductions.

Patti Ross, National LWML President, was the Mission Speaker. She talked about what has happened during the last two years and shared what to expect in the coming two year. She said the goals for LWML are to: include mentoring with younger women; encourage more involvement of Pastors and Seminarians so they know we are here as their partners and their assistants; increase communication with Districts that they become stronger over the next 2 years; and to increase awareness about Giving Tuesday, as more than $23,000 was raised in 2016 toward the LWML 2015-2017 Mission Goal. President Patti shared her experiences meeting some of the Mission Grant recipients. She also played the 2017 LWML Logo Reveal video and talked about the meaning of the new logo.
Oklahoma District President, Dianna Just made a few introductions and gave her report to the group. She said the next event for YWR is Cookies for Courage on November 18 when they will gather to decorate sugar cookies and deliver to police and fire stations. The District has collected $76,000 of the 2016-2018 Mission Grants goal of $103,000. Dianna asked everyone to gather eye glasses for the OK District MOST Mission Trip in March to Lake Amatitlan, Guatemala.
