Our community has been amazing from day one. Activities have been ongoing in the Events Center from the beginning! Fund-raising auctions, Camark Pottery and Antique shows and sales, class reunions, school reunions, civic club meetings, training seminars, Master Gardening Club activities, awards luncheons, and even memorial services. We’ve had weddings, concerts, and visitors from all over the United States. We’re delighted to serve our community and look forward to your group visiting soon!
Isn’t it just the best when good people come together? The pots of flowers around the Little Free Library are blooming this summer, we can thank the “Project Search” class from OCH/UAMS for planting them during their service project this week. These students did a great job preparing the pots, putting in the plants and packing out the soil and topping with mulch. Thank you for your service project at The Events Center. We still have flowers blooming all year, from the class three years ago!
