Mr. President, I am pleased to inform my colleagues in the Senate today that the city of Coweta, in my home State of Oklahoma, is celebrating the centennial of its founding.

Coweta has a rich and proud history. From its beginning as a Native American settlement town to being one of the fastest growing cities in one of the fastest growing counties in Oklahoma, Coweta is truly a great place to live, work, and raise a family. It is a place where values like faith, family, and community are lived daily by its residents. The spirit and character of Oklahoma are alive and well in Coweta.

It is my honor and privilege of help recognize and celebrate this occasion. Generations of residents have made Coweta a renewable place during its first 100 hundred years. Current and future generations will continue to make Coweta a special place for many years to come.

Congratulations to Coweta for celebrating this centennial.
