Join us on October 12, 2016 from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. as we celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial Plaza.   The event will take place at Wabbaseka Community Park, intersection of Highway 79/63 and Myrtle Street, Wabbaseka, Arkansas.

The Arkansas State Flag was designed and sewn over a hundred years ago by Miss Willie K. Hocker.  Miss Hocker lived, taught, and wrote poetry in Wabbaseka, Arkansas and surrounding communities.

A memorial commemorating the Arkansas State Flag, the USS Arkansas Navy battleship, and Miss Hocker was established in the Wabbaseka Community Park in 2013.  Recently, it was learned that O.C. Horton, Jr., a Wabbaseka native, served on the USS Arkansas and will now be recognized on the memorial.

Jason Irby and the Wabbaseka Memorial Committee would also like to commend our military veterans.  Wabbaseka is proud of its contributions to Arkansas’ rich heritage.

Jason Irby and the Wabbaseka Memorial Committee celebrate the rich heritage of Arkansas and ask you to help maintain the memorial by making a tax deductible contribution online at http://www.arkansasflagwabbasekamemorial.wordpress.com.

We also invite you to come to Wabbaseka, Arkansas and experience the memorial in person.
