Ways to Connect

The Regional National Cemetery Improvement Corp (RNCIC) was started in 1984 when the Fayetteville National Cemetery began running out of space for veterans, who have been buried there since the end of the Civil War.

Merle Williams, Publicity Director for the RNCIC, talks to Pete Hartman about the organization's 9th annual 5K run on Nov. 4. All proceeds from the race support land expansion for the cemetery.

This weekend is the third annual HeART of Rogers Craft Fair. The event hosts booths from local artisans and is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. This year, visitors can browse crafts at two locations- the newly renovated Haas Hall Academy and the First United Methodist Church -both in historic, downtown Rogers. 

Jan VanSchuyver, from the grassroots organization RESULTS, visits the Nancy Blair Operations Studio to talk about the group's upcoming advocacy workshop. The bipartisan initiative aims to demystify advocacy, teach people how to communicate with legislators and how to develop techniques for championing any cause important to them. 

The Arts Center of the Ozarks in downtown Springdale has been a staple of the community for the last 50 years. The community organization provides arts classes for all ages, hosts theatrical performances and houses a gallery for local artists. 

The fifth annual Kessler Trail Run is set for this Saturday at 9 am. The run is sponsored by the Fayetteville Natural Heritage Association and helps raise money for the Kessler Mountain Reserve- a 386-acre public nature site- which the City of Fayetteville purchased in 2014. 

Sim Barrow and Dana Smith from the Kessler Trail Run planning committee talk to Pete Hartman about changes to this year's course and what runners can expect.
