LITTLE ROCK – Friday, the Main Street Arkansas program said it “had a chance to celebrate our Main Street programs and present them with their ceremonial “big check.” These checks allow our programs money to do good things in their communities and this year, Sec. Hurst is encouraging the communities to THINK BIG! We were welcomed on this beautiful but steamy summer day to the Argenta Plaza for an outdoor event. Speakers included: North Little Rock Mayor Terry Hartwick, Pulaski County Judge Barry Hyde, Arkansas Heritage Director Jimmy Bryant, Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism Secretary Stacy Hurst, as well as Argenta Downtown Council’s Chris Kent. Nearly all of our Main Street and Downtown Network programs attended today. Members of the press are welcome to request photos by emailing mandy.shoptaw@arkansas.gov.”
