Good Day NWA

Here’s a look at what is happening in Northwest Arkansas sponsored by the Canada Dry Variety Pack.

Ahead of Memorial Day a local organization is paying tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our country. Bo’s Blessings is seeking volunteers for its honor and respect headstone washing. Originally scheduled for Thursday, May 20, it’s been moved to Friday, May 21 due to weather conditions. Every headstone at the Fayetteville National Cemetery will be cleaned. Volunteers will receive all of the cleaning tools needed. Bo’s Blessings provides programs, support, and resources for veterans to transition back to a civilian life.
