The circus is coming to town. Mark your calendar for Friday, April 27. The Kelley Miller Circus will perform two shows at the Gurdon City Park on the sports field near the lake.
This should be a lot of fun and the children will have full advantage of the playground and tree house at the park before and after the show. The big top will go up around noontime on that Friday.
One of our Gurdon Water Department employees, Ricky Evins is leaving to pursue a career as a butcher. This means that we have an opening for a full-time maintenance worker. Interested applicants should pick up an application at the Gurdon Water Department and be advised that after hour and weekend overtime are required as needed.
As I write this column, we are expecting snow. If and when that occurs please be careful, especially on decks and ramps. Test the surface before you step on it. Even retrieving your newspaper on your front porch can be dangerous.
I had the pleasure of speaking at the Arkadelphia Noontime Rotary Club last week at the invitation of Rotary President Stephen Bell. He wanted me to share all the good things that are happening in Gurdon.
The room was filled with many people who helped make these exciting improvements a reality and the crowd was welcoming and encouraging. It was nice to see everyone, including two of my previous bosses Eddie Graham and Dr. James Waymack. Working together with the Economic Development Corporation, the Alliance, Clark County, Arkadelphia, HSU and OBU has been very beneficial to our town.
I need to make a correction to last week's column. The phone number for the Gurdon Business Center is (870) 406-3515.
