This is our FUN once-per-month (2nd Sundays) cleanup of Main Street, LR, between 12th & 18th Streets. We meet in front of Community Bakery at I-630 & Main St. and our route returns us to Community Bakery (some ODO’ers enjoy staying there afterwards for coffee/chat/dessert!).
On the 2nd Saturday of every month, we prepare dinner for 40 women & children residents at the domestic violence shelter (they so appreciate it!). Once we've prepared the meal, then one ODO'er will drive it to the confidential domestic violence shelter location. No need to bring an ingredient. Bethany provides everything. However, she encourages donations up to $10 to offset the cost. This is one of our funnest and most fulfilling events - hope to see you there!
• What we'll do
Free wine, beer, food, live music, socializing --and Art-- at the Historic Arkansas Museum for "2nd Friday Art Nite"! Event is officially from 5PM to 8PM, but most of us arrive around 5:30 or later. Brian will have his cell[masked] if you can’t find the group. Directions to the museum: At the bottom of the i-30 exit ramp for the river market, proceed straight onto 2nd Street. Museum is on the left. There's free parking across from the museum's south entrance (the lot says reserved but it's open to the public every Art Nite). To get to the parking lot from 2nd St, turn left onto Rock St, then left onto 3rd St.
