Do you know where to go to even get these answers?

Earlier this spring I was able to attend an event at War Memorial Stadium called "Little Rock Serves," which is sponsored by Create Little Rock, an arm of the Little Rock Chamber.

Storm strikes century-old cemetery

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Thomas Cemetery was established in 1880, the grounds rich with North Little Rock history but neglected for years.

"There has been a lot of work in trying to restore the grounds," says Project Manager, Jean Brister.

A girl scout leader for more than 40 years, she led her troop in a service project for a nearby graveyard when they were introduced to the Thomas cemetery.

"As we were visiting with the Edgewood, they told us about this old abandoned cemetery up the hill. And these little girls, these 12 and 13 year old girls were curious, " said Brister.
