Celebrate Arkansas' 175th birthday!

LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Old State House Museum will mark Arkansas’s 175th Birthday with two events on Saturday, June 11, 2011, and Wednesday, June 15, 2011.

Travel Back to 1836

To observe the 175th anniversary of Arkansas statehood, the Old State House Museum and Historic Arkansas Museum are recreating life in 1836 Arkansas with a joint living history event, "175 Years of Arkansas Statehood" on Saturday, June 11, 2011. The fun will begin at the Historic Arkansas Museum with living history demonstrations highlighting everyday life in Little Rock at the time of statehood. Visitor can participate in dancing, military drills, and 18th century chores from 9 am to 12 pm.

At noon event participants and visitors will parade from the Historic Arkansas Museum to the Old State House Museum, where Arkansas’s admission to the union will be commemorated with a 26-gun salute and the raising of a 26-star U.S.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Consider this: Where would you turn for advice on assisting a loved one affected by Alzheimer's? How will your basic needs be met should your child become ill with cancer? What kinds of chemicals and additives are in your food -- and how is it affecting your health?

Do you know where to go to even get these answers?

Earlier this spring I was able to attend an event at War Memorial Stadium called "Little Rock Serves," which is sponsored by Create Little Rock, an arm of the Little Rock Chamber.
