AWW & WEA 2018 SPOUSE PROGRAM

We are thrilled to invite all spouses to the 87th Annual Arkansas Water Works & Water Environment Association Conference and 2018 Spouse Program. While in Hot Springs, we have plans for a spouse luncheon and a special group activity. There will be a few surprises in store so please join us for all the fun, or any part of it!
 
Our Spouse Program offers a great opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with those we already know! 
 
This year's host is Harriett Benzing

Make plans to join in the fun at the Ted & Clara Gentry Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament on Wednesday May 2, 2018. We will continue the tradition of the 4-Person Scramble tournament at the beautiful Hot Springs Country Club.    Proceeds from the 2017 Tournament were nearly $4,000 and help to fund the Ted and Clara Gentry Memorial Scholarship Program.  We plan to make this year's tournament one of the best ever and encourage you to sign up early.

For more information or for Golf Sponsorship Opportunities, please contact: A. J. Kaufman at (501) 374-4846 or email at aj.kaufman@hawkins-weir.com with the subject line GOLF18.
