AETN builds community spirit with Family Day Conway 2013

Posted 26 Aug 2013

The Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) has announced Family Day Conway 2013 - a free public event to encourage community spirit through family-friendly fun and entertainment, educational activities and community service drives - to be held Saturday, Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the statewide network headquarters, 350 South Donaghey Avenue, Conway. Following in the footsteps of the iconic Fred Rogers, AETN extends the invitation of "Won't You be My Neighbor?" to all Arkansans for the daylong celebration.

"Fred Rogers was a special friend to millions of children and their families, and his caring, genuine spirit lives on every day in the work of AETN and educational public media," AETN Executive Director Allen Weatherly said. "He was and is a personal hero.

"We are pleased to celebrate his legacy and the ongoing work of AETN for Arkansas families with our popular Family Day. We look forward to lots of fun, food and fellowship at our headquarters in Conway."

Community service drives to be held at Family Day include:
