Friends of the Fort Membership Meeting

November 11, 2018
2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The Friends of the Fort will hold a public membership meeting in the visitor's center at the Fort Smith National Historic Site. Anyone interested in learning more about the Friends group and the many services the group provides to the Fort Smith National Historic Site is encouraged to attend. The Friends group currently presents two Night Courts in Judge Parker's courtroom each year, organizes special events, provides volunteers and financial assistance to the National Historic Site and helps develop new programs to preserve and present our rich heritage to the public. In the group's short history, it brought Train Day to the historic Frisco Station, organized walking tours on the parade ground at the Fort Smith National Historic Site, developed a tour to tell the history of the Coke Hill area at the location of the original fort, represented the National Historic Site in parades, organized programs to be presented as part of the first Fort Smith Fall Festival and provided volunteers and support to several National Historic Site events. The Friends of the Fort were honored to be allowed to organize the Christmas Day program at the first fort at Belle Point to kick off Fort Smith's year-long bicentennial celebration. The Friends of the Fort is a 501c3 organization working in partnership with the Fort Smith National Historic Site. Its goal is to provide assistance to exisiting Historic Site events and develop new programs. Friends of the Fort members have a deep understanding of, and respect for, the true history of our area and welcome opportunities to share our rich heritage with local residents and visitors from around the globe. The meeting will include a tour of the Fort Smith National Historic Site and a review of activities planned for 2019.
