The Clinton Library: Five years after

Posted By on Fri, Oct 23, 2009 at 11:33 AM

Time flies. It's been almost five years since the Clinton Library was dedicated on a raw, rainy day in November.

Fifth anniversary events Nov. 14-18 are planned around a "Five Days of Giving" theme, in keeping with the Clinton Foundation's worldwide charitable endeavors. The Little Rock event will be locally focused -- a coat drive, public service projects and a closing "Thank You, Arkansas" luncheon in a tent on the library grounds Nov. 18.

The lunch won't be a fancy, high-dollar event, but a people's lunch. It'll cost $25 each and the 1,000 tickets will be distributed first-come, first-served. The keynote speaker is, naturally, President 42, William J. Clinton.

Details here.

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
