TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Rotary Club of Tulsa broke ground Wednesday on a $1 million downtown plaza dedicated to the volunteer spirit of Tulsa.

Rotary Plaza is the group's centennial project and a gift to the City of Tulsa. It will feature five bronze sculptures on a landscaped plaza.

The plaza will be located on the southwest corner of the Williams Center Green, on Third Street between Main and Boston.

"This is a milestone event in the 98-year history of our club," said President Phil Lakin. "We are pleased to start construction and look forward to the dedication this fall."

The sculptures are by Tulsa artists Jay O'Meilia and David Nunneley and will capture the spirit of volunteerism.  There will also be a granite column describing Tulsa as "America's Most Generous City."
