“Love It!” said Heather Hardy who sits on the commission for the 2017 Okra strut.


According to Larry Slaughter the commission president, the idea for an Okra Strut dance was actually Leeza Gibbons. Larry really liked the idea and Terence was just the guy to make it happen. Listen to a quick sample of the song being released next Friday at the Okra Strut!!!
