The Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department will hold a public involvement meeting on Thursday, Sept. 18, to present and discuss proposed design plans to widen Arkansas 5 from Alcoa Road to Arkansas 183 in Bryant.
Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs said this will be an "open house" event with no formal presentations scheduled. The public is invited to attend the meeting any time between 4 and 7 p.m. to view exhibits, ask questions and offer comments.
The meeting will be held at Grace Church in Bryant, 4200 Highway 5 North.
In hopes of raising the last bit of money for a new building in Bryant, Civitan Services will be hosting a murder mystery dinner.
"Murder at the Masquerade," which will serve as Civitan Services' largest fundraiser of the year, will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, at the Benton Event Center.
During the event, the audience will be able to try to figure out with their table mates a mystery portrayed by a group of professional actors from Murder Mystery Company in Nashville.
