‘How to’ series to open


The White Hall Museum, 9009 Dollarway Road, will host a series of programs beginning Monday to showcase different interests and hobbies of local residents. The first in the series called “How to do this” will be a demonstration by Brenda Murphy, a designer with Tipton Hurst of Little Rock, on flower arranging and wreath making for Christmas.

Mary Lou Mauldin, museum director, said there is no charge for attendance, adding that participants can bring their material or purchase a undecorated base wreath used by florists with wide mesh ribbon.

The first meeting on Nov. 5 from 7-9 p.m. will include discussions about future lessons on cake decorating, cooking ideas, quilt making, photography, flower and garden planting and care, how to write a novel, basic sewing, knitting, smocking, self-protection for women and square dance lessons.

“We are fortunate to have citizens who are actually experts in their field and are willing to come and share their knowledge with us,” Mauldin added. Tentative plans call for the lessons to be offered the first Monday of each

A coffee hour will follow the demonstrations for participants to become acquainted and share ideas. For addition information, call Mauldin at (870) 692-7231.
