Every week there is the exercise program at the Alread EH Club. The low-impact strengthening classes are always free and meet from 9-10:30 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sheila McGrath would like to keep doing the quilting circle every Thursday (from about 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) but needs at least one more person. If you are interested, please give her a call: 501-745-2389. If you would like to use the EH Club building for a family event, then Sheila is also the person that you want to call about that.

On Saturday, April 7, there will be a benefit for the Neal family at the Crabtree Foursquare Church. Everyone is encouraged to come.

If you are bringing chili, you need to get there by 4:30 p.m. Everyone will eat at 5 p.m. and the pie auction will begin at 6 p.m..
