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.
