Recently, both County Judge Brandon Ellison and Mena Mayor George McKee signed proclamations declaring July 28, 2014 as “Clarice’s Room of Hope Day.”
The proclamations acknowledged Clarice Tisher, mother of Teena Brown, who was diagnosed with cancer and received assistance at the Donald Reynolds Cancer Support House. She knew of so many in Mena that could benefit from the service. Teena promised her mother that would see what she could do and although Clarice didn’t live to see it happen, she lives on through Teena and the volunteer support offered to other cancer patients through Clarice’s Room of Hope.
The Mena/Polk County Chamber of Commerce also recently held a ribbon cutting at their new location, welcoming them to their membership.
Living true to their mission to encourage and inspire people to keep going and never give up, Teena has now opened in a larger facility at 403 North Morrow – Suite C and will be holding a very special celebration on Clarice’s birthday, July 28, now also officially proclaimed Clarice’s Room of Hope Day from 10 am until 5:30 p.m.
