Weatherization Day in Arkansas set

Gov. Mike Beebe has declared Oct. 31 Weatherization Day in Arkansas. There will be a Weatherization Day event, free to the public, held in the Little Rock River Market beginning at 10:30 a.m.

The Jazz Combo I from the University of Arkansas at Monticello will perform during the event sponsored by the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and Arkansas Energy Office.

The Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income families conserve energy, save money, and live in healthier, safer homes. WAP is accountable to the public for responsibly investing federal tax dollars to support local communities.

Demonstrations at the mobile training lab directly behind the pavilion will take place after the speakers. Lunch will include barbecue and the traditional Weatherization Day cake. A table will include applications and general information on how to apply for the program.
