Announcing: The "Heavenly Heartland" Road Trip!

The EIC Crew is pleased to announce its 2010 Spring Road Trip event on Saturday, April 24th 2010. The event will begin with a walking tour of Flat Rock Hollow and continue through the heart of Izard County visiting various historical sites. During the event, we will visit Flat Rock Hollow (fantastic Rock formation at the convergence of two creeks with waterfalls), Flat Rock Church, The Old Stone Store-Building at Band Mill, Newburg Schoolhouse, Old Philadelphia Church & Cemetery, The P. O. Wren Store, and Caney Springs Church. Besides the walking tour, other activities are being planned including a short history lesson at Old Philadelphia and a visit inside the P.O. Wren Store at Lacrosse. The tour will last 3-4 hours and cover approximately 25 Miles.

During all of our tour-events, we seek to raise funds for an important historical preservation project in the county. This Spring, we will be donating all proceeds to The Izard County Veteran's Memorial Park to help with the addition of a new Flagpole and an expanded memorial wall. Izard County has a rich, rich history of military service during every era of its existence and it deserves to be honored and remembered!

As with our previous Road-Trip events, space will be limited. If you plan to attend this EIC Event, please let us know A.S.A.P.
