Completed: "Calico Rockin' - The Bluff City Bash" Road Trip!

On October 23rd, 2010, nearly 60 people in 23 vehicles snaked through the streets of Calico Rock to visit several exciting places around town. The event began with a walking tour to Hobo's Den followed by a driving tour to several historic buildings and a stop at Stoner's Point. Below are a few photos from the Road-Trip. We'll be compiling photos from participants and EIC Event Staff over the next few days to produce a Webshots photo album of the event. We'll also be processing what video we shot to produce a movie for the YouTube page. Check in later this week for these additions to our coverage of yesterday's event!

We're proud to announce that through the generosity of area businesses and our tour participants, we were able to raise over $400 for the new Calico Rock History Museum!

We so appreciate area businesses who value what we're trying to accomplish through events like this. Our sponsors are:

In Melbourne
- The Ashley House B&B, The American Burger Center, Beene's Car-Care, The Corner Drug Store, Mark's Pharmacy, Cooper's on the Square, Ramsey's Computer Service

In Calico Rock - Cedar Rock Lodge, Don Quixote's, Clinkingbeard Family Clothing, Ed & Kay's Place, The Wagon Wheel Antiques, White River Cafe, Park Street Pharmacy


ENJOY!

It was an informative and enjoyable trip. Thank Mother nature for giving us such a beautiful day. A big thanks to Ed & Pat Matthews for allowing us to invade their privacy and tour/+ briefly lounge in their home (the Perryman House). Everyone involved can be proud of the progress of The Museum. It is GREAT to see an Artist Co-Op. The Riverview Hotel was a great "Blast from the past/throw back in time." Having seen the Trimble House in June, it was nice to see the progress of the restoration. The painted fireplace was a unique touch. Thanks Denny, and all of your crew who worked in collaboration with other groups and entities to make this an enjoyable and informative event. All of Your efforts are to be commended. Great work on the Web site too.

The Chamber was involved via the Library. It's unfortunate that you missed the tour. There were indeed wires crossed in the local media articles. We began both tours at the Calico Rock Church of Christ.

Participants who signed-up for the tour contacted us via e-mail or telephone per the article in the local media outlets and were sent a tour info-pack complete with schedule, tour map, and a "Things to Consider" page.

We would have loved having you along.
