A Note from the Mayor
It is graduation time, and we congratulate all our students, who are graduating from high school and college. It is an exciting time for you and your family, as you begin a new chapter in your life. We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.
As warmer weather arrives and schools close for the summer, children and residents will be outside more often, walking, biking and playing. Please be more attentive as you drive through neighborhoods, sport complexes, and other areas of the city. You will not be late by slowing down, unless you were already going to be late. Please observe all speed limits and do not text and drive! We can all be a little safer and look out for our neighbors.
We will be having an official Ribbon Cutting on the White Oak Crossing roadway project (formerly known as the Counts Massie Extension) on Friday May 4, 2018 at 11:00 am. The ceremony will take place on the bridge over White Oak Bayou.
Counting on Each Other, Inc. (CEO), a non-profit organization that supports the needs of senior citizens in the community, is hosting a fundraising event this month. The “Community Yard Sale” is May 5, 2018 from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Jess Odom Community Center. Admission is free. Breakfast and lunch will be served for a small fee.
The Maumelle Lions Club will be hosting the Lions Club Fish Fry on May 12, 2018 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Lake Willastein. In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the Jess Odom Community Center. Tickets are $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for senior citizens and children under 12. Tickets are available in advance from any member of the Lions Club or at the Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce office. You can also purchase tickets at the event.
The annual Maumelle Memorial Day Ceremony will be held May 28, 2018 at 10:00 am at the Maumelle Veterans Memorial at Lake Willastein Park. This ceremony honors members of the Armed Forces, who died serving our country. We hope that you can join us to honor the men and women, who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to acknowledge the sacrifices of their families. It is an honor to have the Field of Flags display as part of the ceremony. The Field of Flags is in remembrance of service members with Arkansas connections, who died since 9/11. Please join us, as we honor those who died in service to our country.
There will still be time to go to the lake or have a picnic later in the day.
If there is something specific going on in the City and you want or need more information in order to understand it better, please contact us. We want to help you stay informed about your community. I look forward to seeing more and more of our residents at City Council meetings, Planning Commission meetings and other public forums.
