Following the final charrette work session held in mid October in Waldron with Dr. Mark Peterson and Mr. Ed Levy, the Scott County ARCO Group planned a Cast-iron Cooking event to further engage the community with the ideas and promising opportunities that emerged from the previous community development meetings that had been held in Waldron.
Dinner, music, and a meeting were all served up on Monday, October 29th at Waldron City Hall. Scott County Judge James Forbes and Scott County Extension Agent Shaun Rhoades lined the sidewalk with cast-iron Dutch ovens that sizzled all afternoon with the slow-cooked foods that were served that evening. Mayor Don Owens was on hand to assist and several City employees enjoyed sampling the foods. Local musicians entertained the crowd of approximately 50 people who also learned more about ARCO and the “Partners for the Future” initiative.
The next local meeting is planned for November 26th. Join us for this important opportunity to envision and plan for our future.
