Current and former residents and friends of the Tull community will come together this coming weekend to celebrate the 127th anniversary of Old Folks Singing.
The event is scheduled Sunday, May 20, at Ebenezer United Methodist Church and will begin at 10 a.m.
The first Old Folks Singing took place on the third Sunday in May in 1885.
In keeping with an established pattern, singing during the morning segment will come from the original Christian Harmony hymn book.
May 31 will mark the 43rd wedding anniversary of Bryant residents Anna
Elizabeth and Joe Ogden. The couple met in 1969 at the Wesleyan Foundation
on the campus of the - then - Arkansas Agricultural and Mechanical College
in Monticello, where Ogden worked.
âIâd come in for a free meal on Sunday nights," Anna muses. âI didnât have
a car, and he offered to give me a ride back home.â
âTwo weeks after we met, I told her,âIâm going to marry you',â Ogden says.
âI told him, âthat sounds like a pretty good idea to me,ââ Anna laughs.
Human remains found in a remote area of the Saline County side of the Ouachita National Forest have been identified as a Union County man reported missing for about 5 years.
