There were several "guests of honor" on hand, including Jennifer Rambo and her partner Kristin Seaton, the first couple issued a license in the state of Arkansas. Rambo says its important to remember how far they have come. "It's hard to not think and know deep down, always remember that the only reason that we're here anyway, and the only reason that things got this way is because of the hard work that was done to get us there." Rambo said. The reception was co-sponsored by the National Human Rights Campaign and the Eureka Springs Gay Business Guild, and had more than 40 restaurants, hotels, gift shops, galleries and retailers contribute to the reception. Over 250 people showed up, and director Michael Walsh said he was more than impressed with the turnout.
