I want to take the time to give out some "Big Thanks" to Sevier County Sheriff's Department, Horatio Fire Department, De Queen First Assembly of God Church and the Horatio First Baptist Church.

You made a lot of little and big kids have a wonderful evening with the "Block Party."

The looks, laughs and squeals were wonderful to see and hear from the children.

You had the best hot dogs ever! The snow cones were awesome, the bouncy house was a blast and the water balloons were fun, fun! The water from the fire truck was the grand finale! One little boy said, "Look Granny, it's raining!" The children had the most awesome evening and the parents had a ball. And it was all given with love, free to everyone.

Again, thanks so very much sheriff and your department, fire department and churches.

What a wonderful community outreach! I am proud to be a Sevier County resident. 

Heads up Lockesburg, Gillham and De Queen. Block parties are coming your way.
