On Feb. 5, 2009, Tulsa, Okla. Mayor Kathy Taylor proclaimed Joe Wanenmacher Day. Wanenmacher has organized the Tulsa Arms Show for a number of years, an event that draws people from around the globe.
“I am so happy to have received this award,” Wanenmacher addressed the Tulsa City Council. “I don't know whether I deserve it or not.”
