May is Arkansas Heritage Month
The theme for Arkansas Heritage Month 2007 is "Our Business is Heritage." Heritage professionals work with limited resources to preserve history, stories, sites, and artifacts of local, regional, and national significance. ASU's Heritage Sites include the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center, the Southern Tenant Farmers Museum, and the Lakeport Plantation. This year, free family/community lore and history recording sessions will be offered, along with "Keepers: Preserving Your Heritage" presentations. These presentations are courtesy of the Keepers Project, an Arkansas Heritage Month event sponsored by Arkansas Delta Byways, ASU Heritage Sites, and a grant from the Department of Arkansas Heritage. A Keepers Project display and recording session will be held at the Southern Tenant Farmers Museum in Tyronza. This session is part of the Tyronza Stars and Stripes Jubilee community festival on Saturday, May 19, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. For details, contact Jodi Morris at (870) 514-6773, or visit for Keepers Project information.
