FALL 2011 OPEN HOUSE
For those of us who serve ATAT as directors, our Open House Meet & Greet, held Sunday, October 16, at the Main branch of the downtown public library, was a triple-dip celebration.

Our executive director returned from a 2-month business trip to China on October 11th, our weekly radio-talk show, "It Could Be You," debuted October 12th, and our open house on the 16th topped off our exciting week.

At right, left to right: Robert Kim Combs, Executive Director, Arkansas Time After Time, Christine Beems, Communication Director, Miriam Graham, Recruitment Director, and Carla Swanson, Correspondence Director, enjoyed a business-lunch at the Community Bakery in Little Rock just prior to the ATAT open house. The 'fans and flags' being displayed by the women came from China.

A good-sized group of registrants and their spouses mixed and mingled with ATAT advocates and interested others in the public meeting room provided by the Little Rock public library.

Guests and advocates came from as far away as Russellville, Mountain View, Choctaw, McCrory, Heber Springs, Concord and Clinton. ATAT Steering Committee members pictured below with guests include Miriam Graham, ATAT Recruitment Director (left photo, red dress), Carla Swanson, ATAT Correspondence Director (center photo, white blouse), and.Lynn Gilmor, ATAT Lobbying Director (right photo, purple blouse).

A veritable banquet of nibbles and noshies, provided by ATAT Correspondence Director Carla Swanson, included an array of cheeses, a variety of luncheon meat cubes, and assortment of fruit chunks, veggies spears with dip and deviled eggs, topped off with a spectacular orange-tango punch.

Our guests were also greeted by our exhibit table and new exhibit poster (both below).

All of which was put to very good use by members of the media who rewarded our efforts with a stellar profile piece on the evening news! Take a look at our Fall Open House as reported by KARK-TV. When the page opens in a new window, make sure to click the 'play video' link!!!

That you may be filled with strength and power, rooted and grounded in love that surpasses all knowledge: Be kind to one another; live with compassion, producing every kind of goodness; stand firm and hold your ground in truth, righteousness and peace; be courageous; embrace faith which is perfect trust in justice. ~Ephesians 3-6 (condensed)
