A Message from the Chair
Since we have a lot of events lined up for the coming weeks, including all of our Land in the Rock activities kicking off next week on May 31st, we wanted to get the June newsletter out a few days early. Summer is always the busiest time of the year for CLR, with plenty great of opportunities to get out and see the city! We'll start things off like we did last summer with a pizza party hosted by Apptegy. Then we'll be taking in a Rangers soccer game and a Travs baseball game. I'm particularly excited about our happy hour this month at Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts. The museum just reopened after a $170 million renovation, and it's a sight to behold in terms of both the architecture and the works of art. Don't forget to check out the other things going on around town at the bottom of the newsletter - June is packed with great events. I look forward to seeing everyone soon!

Land in the Rock - All Summer Long
Each summer, Create Little Rock puts on a busy summer programming series designed to welcome interns, law clerks, recent grads, and anyone else new to the Little Rock region to show them what we have to offer. All LITR events are also for our regular CLR members. In fact, we encourage everyone to attend so that our summer guests make plenty of local connections!

If your company has anyone who fits the above categories, please encourage them to sign up for Land in the Rock emails at landintherock.com and bring them to a CLR event with you! We'll begin by welcoming them with our Kickoff Party hosted at Apptegy. Next we'll have free tickets to a Little Rock Rangers soccer game followed by free tickets to a Travs baseball game. We'll close out the month with a Get Cultured event at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts.
