Community Education

Welcome Spring. Many amazing classes to choose.
Daylight savings time has arrived, and we welcome Spring! We opened in early February and this year we have already exceeded our participation numbers from last year. We kicked off our 2017 season by hosting the Arkansas Master Naturalists with their presentation on Bird Identification, and then sent them off for a cold barge ride on the lake to view the eagles’ nest on Sugar Loaf Mountain. Due to the damage caused by the high winds in our town our March Sterling Scholar presenter – District Judge Susan Weaver – has been rescheduled for June 7th. April’s Sterling Scholar is Colonel Deason from Senator Boozman’s office. Partnering with the Rotary Club, we sponsor the Sterling Scholars on the first Wednesday of each month at the Little Red Restaurant.

We hosted the Arkansas African American Legislators exhibit of the Black History Commission of Arkansas and the Arkansas History Commission ( in March, and this month we will feature an exhibit of original works of art from our students in Jim Tindall’s painting class.

Now that our lovely weather is warming up we greet our resort guests with a list of our classes and events at the Monday morning welcome breakfast at the Conference Center where we join with the other Fairfield Bay representatives in welcoming them to our community. This gives them an opportunity to plan their activities for their week with us.

We are adding new classes and events to our schedule and the best way to keep informed is to check our Facebook page: FFB Community Education Center.
