I visited with the new Sonic folks last week. They said that they are interested in the selling the current Sonic, which is located on Highway 53 South (Main Street and Third Street).

Inquiries should be directed to Sonic manager Dorothy Lemons. I was told that the property could be used as a restaurant with the stipulation that there would be no hot dog or fountain drink sales. They did say that hamburger sales would be alright.
Also the property would make a great car lot. I am sure that there are a thousand other wonderful uses for the building. Which, by the way, is made of very sturdy construction, according to the contractor.
My family and I are really looking forward to the Gurdon Chamber of Commerce Banquet this week. Steve Landers should be a fun speaker.
I enjoy his commercials on television and Anita Cabe said that he is very personable, friendly and community minded. We hope to see you there on Tuesday night at 6:30 at the Gurdon High School Cafeteria. Tickets will be available at the door or call 353-4444.
Our First United Methodist Church of Gurdon Pastor, Travis Langley, will be leaving us soon. He has been transferred by the Bishop to El Dorado. We will miss him immensely. His sermons are so good and he has a very natural way of delivering his messages. June 11th will be his last Sunday.
My husband and I attended the Clark County Community Foundation's (CCCF) Annual Dinner last week. So many generous donors were on hand.
The CCCF awarded grants to dozens of worthy organizations in the county. I was on to receive a grant I wrote for the Gurdon Little League program. Other recipients in Gurdon were; the Evergreen Church Food Pantry, the Baptist Health Gurdon Family Clinic and the Gurdon High School. We are all very appreciative.
Speaking of grants, my work on the USDA Rural Business Enterprise Grant is nearly complete. So many good people have been involved in this undertaking. I could not have gotten this far without them.
What a great feeling to have this vision shared with others who are willing to contribute to the success of this endeavor. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. In January, when this work started, I said that if I just completed all the rigorous requirements for the USDA RBEG I would consider it a success. And I do. And I learned that there are many friends of our town in Clark County.
I appreciate their support and their work on this project. We will learn if Gurdon will receive the grant in a few months. But I know, right now, that you are for us and the success of our community. Thank you.
