We are excited to announce the 3rd anniversary observance for the showcase and dedication of the Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial Plaza.
The Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial was initially dedicated on October 12, 2013 in honor of the 100th year anniversary of the Arkansas Flag, Miss Willie K. Hocker (flag designer from Wabbaseka, Arkansas), and the USS Arkansas naval battle ship. The Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial is now a beautiful flag, veteran’s memorial, and landmark located at Wabbaseka Community Park in Wabbaseka, Arkansas.
To celebrate this great occasion and observance, we have invited local radio station KABZ 103.7 The Buzz. The Show with No Name morning show will host from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
On the morning of Wednesday, October 12, 2016 we will feature and join Tommy Smith, David Bazzel, and Roger Scott as part of a live on-site broadcast at the Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial Plaza located at the intersection of Highway 79/63 and Myrtle Street in Wabbaseka, Arkansas. The broadcast will also feature local and state governmental officials, local, state and military historians, agricultural and wildlife officials, and citizens from the community.
Jason Irby, founder and establisher of the memorial has contributed $500 toward this showcase and fundraiser and is challenging others to meet or exceed his contribution. Proceeds are used for the continued maintenance, upkeep and future improvements of the memorial. The Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial is a non-profit organization managed by the Wabbaseka Memorial Committee.
Please join us in our endeavors as we continually seek to honor our veterans and the community.
