BY BARBARA M. TOBIAS –
The Ouachita Arts Celebration in the Downtown Arts District is working with as many of the organizations in Mena as possible to put together a fun day on November 1. The Lioness Club plans to have a booth serving coke floats. Perfect for a warm fall day.
The Lioness Club will use the funds generated from the floats to continue donating to worthwhile causes here in Mena. Some of the things they support are:
Polk County Development Center
Backpack Food Program (food for children at our local elementary schools that is sent home over the weekend so they are fed while school is not in session)
9th Street Ministries
Toys for Tots
Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA)
Foster Parents Association
Single Parents Scholarship (RMCC)
Clarice’s Room of Hope
They also offer a one-year scholarship of $1,000 to a Polk County student for higher education expenses.
The creative arts businesses who are putting together the Ouachita Arts Celebration are delighted that we can provide a way to help the Lioness Club continue their great work as a part of this fall Arts Celebration. Be sure to watch your paper for details about what else will be going on that day, and mark you calendar for 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, November 1.
