Author Jason Irby and the Wabbaseka Memorial Committee were joined by the Wabbaseka, Arkansas community and guests from around the state to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the Arkansas Flag designed by Miss Willie K. Hocker of Wabbaseka.
“It was awesome to have youth from local ROTCs and retired veterans to join us in this milestone event,” Irby said.
The celebration recognizing the 105th anniversary of the Arkansas State Flag designed by Miss Willie K. Hocker was held February 26, 2018 at Wabbaseka Community Park.
“This year’s event was unique because we were privileged to have several veterans from Wabbaseka to stand and be recognized for their service to our country and we even presented a roll call,” said Irby.
The next event at the Arkansas Flag/Wabbaseka Memorial Plaza will commemorate the 5th year since its inauguration.
