Altrusa International of Washington County will give away backpacks with school supplies, personal care packages and food boxes this weekend during a drive-thru event at Prairie Grove Elementary School.
Today Pete talks with Jane Maginot, a County Extension Agent from the University of Arkansas, about Northwest Arkansas' waterways and an upcoming litter clean-up event.
The clean-up will take place this Saturday, October 26th, in Prairie Grove, Elm Springs, Farmington, and Springdale and will target creeks that are not regularly targetted for clean-up. The clean-up will take place from 10 AM to 12 PM, and volunteers should wear water-appropriate clothes and shoes. Clean-up supplies, such as gloves and trash bags, will be provided.
The Prairie Grove Public Library begins its space-themed summer reading program June 19. Participants can meet at 1 p.m. Wednesdays at the library's new home at the former Walmart Express at 881 W. Buchanan St.
