First Responders Call for Blood Donors – June 21
Waldron’s first responders are looking for citizens to support their efforts through blood donation with Arkansas Blood Institute. Those who give at the Guns ‘N Hoses blood drive on Wednesday, June 21, will provide blood needed to save local lives, such as those that firefighters and law enforcement officers rescue.

Anyone 16 years or older is urged to stop by First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall between 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. All donors will receive special-edition Guns ‘N Hoses T-shirts and a voucher for two admissions to the Oklahoma City Zoo. They will also take part in a little healthy competition by designating their donations to either the fire department or law enforcement as each rallies to top the other with the most blood donations.




Waldron High School Class of ‘55 reunion
A big thank you to Waldron for the fantastic weather you provided for our annual Class of 1955 reunion. No rain, no humidity, no mosquitoes or other flying hungry things and a strong breeze every day to allow us to sit outside and stay cool in the shade.

Some of us began arriving on Thursday, June 8 while others came Friday and Saturday. We had our largest EVER group for Thursday evening dinner and Friday and Saturday nights were also big attendance events at the Charbroiler - good, good food! Equally good breakfasts at the Rock Cafe each morning and the employees at both of these fine restaurants were not only super efficient but had personalities that made you enjoy your meal and want to come back again.




10 Years of Community Involvement
It seems like just yesterday that my family’s community involvement began, but actually it started 10 years ago and it will continue for many more years to come. After we sold our chicken farm, we decided to move into the town of Waldron and settle because we discovered that this was the place we love and would like to live for many years to come.

We had no idea how to begin community involvement. All I can remember was having my oldest daughter participate in culture dances during the PTO’s Fall Festival. We then formed a young Laotian girl group to perform Lao culture dances for elderly people at the Waldron Nursing Home, The Scott County Senior Center, The Scott County Boys & Girls Club, and local areas. That led us to sharing our Lao and Chinese cultures to many youngsters in Waldron and our family’s mission of keeping the community and environment clean.
