Clean Out Those Closets

It's time for fall cleaning, and that means many are cleaning out closets, attics, and garages, just in time for the Quakers rummage sale. The sale, sponsored by the Fayetteville Friends Meeting, and held at Rolling Hills Baptist Church to benefit Cooperative Emergency Outreach, last year netted $2500. We hope that this year will be even better! Lots of volunteers are needed during set up on November 6, as well as on the day of the sale, Saturday, November 7. To volunteer (and to get the first look at all the great bargains!) contact Margaret Britain, 236-0926, or

John Bollinger, Bank of Fayetteville, congratulates Joe Dushan, Beth Armstrong, and Linda Eichmann on the successful pay off of the loan for the purchase, renovation, and expansion of the CEO building at 1649 E. Huntsville Road, Fayetteville, AR. 

As a result of the CEO Capital Campaign, and thanks to many generous donors, CEO owns the building less than 2 years after moving from Rock Street.
