Forward Together: Ponca City Development Authority
AND THEY SAID IT WOULD NEVER LAST…next Tuesday, August 3rd from 5-7 pm, Evans and Associates will hold a 61st anniversary celebration at their home office at 3320 North 14th, just south of Lowes. They were going to celebrate their 60th anniversary last year but it was, after all, 2020 and many plans had to change. You may know Evans and Associates as the company with an office and a concrete batch plant that you see when you drive up 5th or on Knight. What you may not know, however, is that the company has 12 different location, all of which genuflect toward their headquarters here in Ponca City.
The company employs a lot of people locally and statewide and they have been very strong supporters of the community and civic groups. If you can stop by and thank them for all they do for Ponca City, the doors will be open at 5 pm next Tuesday at their office south of Lowes. Ponca City has many great companies like Evans and Associates and this is a wonderful opportunity not just to congratulate them for 61 years, but also to celebrate the many industries that drive Ponca City.
