This is a summarized description of our past, present and future activities. No copies of newsletters, brochures or similar documents have been attached as they have not been designed fin full details. However, a calendar of planned events is included.
> Forming the Society, recruiting board members, filing for 501(c)(3), getting cooperation with City Council of Elm Springs. (Done!)
Continuing to recruit board members, making plans for events, setting timelines for various projects to get accomplished, attending to all the government and state legal requirements. (In Progress)
Now we begin applying for grant monies, soliciting donations and support the Heritage Center in one of the historic downtown buildings in Elm Springs, Arkansas.
A donated land has been put in a preservation trust, and a living history park is currently being developed. (in progress!)
Integrated into these two activities will be ongoing activities, fundraising events, and educational programs developed that will also aid in funding these future projects and events. (In the works)
