Author Jason Irby and the Wabbaseka Memorial Committee showcased documents, panels, and other artifacts pertaining to the Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial.
The memorial was founded by Irby in 2013. The End of Year Exhibit was created to commemorate the effort in celebration of the Arkansas State Flag 100th year anniversary.
Willie K. Hocker, designer of the Arkansas State Flag, and the USS Arkansas were also honored.
The exhibit featured the 2014 accomplishments of the Wabbaseka Memorial Committee and other projects that Irby participated in throughout the year.
Committee members attended to answer questions about the development and future of the flag memorial.
“This memorial has really been a wonderful addition to Arkansas, Jefferson County and Wabbaseka. We have experienced great support from officials and the public. At this point in history, we acknowledge that the Arkansas State Flag and its diamond emblem designed by Mrs. Hocker has endured the test of time and from this point on, we move forward,” Irby said.
The End of Year Exhibit took place at the Wabbaseka Community Center located at 200 South Paw Paw Street in Wabbaseka, Arkansas on Saturday, December 27, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Refreshments were served and community members were in attendance.
