Need to a chance to play with poetry? We’ve teamed up with the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) to host a free, interactive poetry event at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, for people age 55 and older.

Join us at our next workshop at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 29, and learn how to start and grow endowments. Cost is only $10 to hear Ashley Coldiron, chief development officer for the Arkansas Community Foundation, present “Growing Your Organization’s Endowment” at the Department of Arkansas Heritage, Diamond Conference Room, at 1100 North St. in Little Rock.
