Happenings at the Cross
May 2018
Surprise Visitors!

We had a delightful group stop in at Bald Knob Cross on Thursday, April 19th. It was members from the Arkansas Tin Lizzie Club, which is a chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America. They were willing to line up and let us capture a great photo!
Truck Donation Received

We are delighted to share that we have received a donation of a 2500 Dodge Ram truck, with a tommy lift on the back, which will be extremely helpful with general yard maintenance, landscaping, hauling heavy items, etc. 

The donor wishes to remain anonymous, but we send out a huge thank you to the donor, to all those who helped us secure this donation, and all who continue to support Bald Knob Cross of Peace in ways similar to this!

Project Update

Retaining Wall
For some time, the retaining wall behind the welcome center has needed repairing. With the help of a work crew from Vienna Correctional Center, we nearly have that project finished. Thanks to the crew, to Allen Lindsay, our Groundskeeper, and anyone who provided assistance.

New Picnic Tables
On Saturday, May 5th, Chris Duckworth led a work crew from Cornerstone Church in Marion, and created five landscaped pads complete with new picnic tables up around the base of the cross, in the grassy areas on each side. This is an amazing and much needed new addition to that area, and will provide people with places to sit quietly and enjoy the views, to talk and fellowship with family and friends, or to bring a meal to share together. Thank you so much Chris and Cornerstone Church!!!

Par for the Cross Golf Scramble

The rain held off, and though the course was soggy, we had a successful golf scramble on Friday, May 4th! With 9 teams and many other supporters, the laughter and camaraderie was evident everywhere. We are still tallying income and expenses, but we know a nice profit was made for our first scramble. 

Plans are already underway to host a second annual golf scramble on the first Friday of May, 2019 - so golfers, mark your calendars!!
