A key part of the Fort Smith region’s economic development strategy is focused on manufacturing, healthcare and information technology, industries which represents a significant number of jobs and GDP in this region.  To support the expansion of current businesses, as well as attract new businesses, the infrastructure we offer must include a continuous pipeline of new talent skilled in innovative and progressive processes. Through a collaborative effort from key stakeholders around the community, developing this pipeline will truly differentiate our region and our state and position us for long-term growth and success.

First Friday Friends: World Smile Day (for Adults)

Date: Friday, October 6, 2017
Time: 10:30am to 12:00pm
Location: Fort Smith Public Library 3201 Rogers Avenue Fort Smith, Arkansa

Expand your circle of friends at the Fort Smith Public Library at this monthly program featuring fun activities and social time for adults. This month we will be celebrating World Smile Day and random acts of kindness. Harvey Ball, a commercial artist created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet. As the years passed Harvey became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol, and how its original meaning and intent had become lost. Out of that concern came his idea for World Smile Day, a day devoted to smiles and kind acts throughout the world. Coffee and light refreshments will be available. This library program is intended for adults.
