Spring has sprung and everything is so green.

Spring has sprung and everything is so green.
We are ready for our Gurdon Spring Business Expo this Saturday downtown. Come on out and enjoy this free event that will feature 40 local businesses. We will learn about all that these businesses offer and have a chance to take home samples and make purchases. This is a good chance to see the new Gurdon Business Center, too.
We are also ready for the Bee Hive Fashion Show this Saturday. Always my favorite event of the year, you can get your advance tickets at the Bee Hive Store. Everyone is invited and the show starts at 2 p.m.
Winter is over and as we spend more time outdoors, I have to remark about one of my favorite things in Gurdon. The bells that chime on the hour at the First Presbyterian Church on Main Street. The bells mark the hour and then play two hymns. I can always hear them at my home, my mom's house, the walking trail and certainly when I'm downtown. It is a blessing to hear these songs and many times to sing along.
I've been working very hard on a special project. Nothing to announce yet, but hopefully before long. I will let you know.
Welcome to new Gurdon City Council member, Lois Williams. She was sworn in last week and was appointed by the council to fill the vacancy left by Kolbi Harper.
At the meeting Arkadelphia Regional Economic Development Alliance's Stephen Bell and Tiffany McNeal showed the 2017 Clark County Year in Review on the large television at the Gurdon Business Center. The presentation is full of scenes of growth and development in our county and good information on the upcoming project, Sun Bio, in Gum Springs.
The Gurdon City Park is getting busy. There were five bass boats on the lake Saturday and many families enjoying the playground, tree house and big red caboose.
