Service above Self - It's the Rotary battle cry, and this weekend you can help the Rotary Club of Jonesboro serve Region 8. 

The annual Arkansas Sportshow is this weekend at the ASU Convocation Center. Experience over 75,000 square feet of the latest sporting products designed to captivate hunting, fishing and boating enthusiasts of all ages including boats and motors, ATV's fishing equipment, hunting gear, special seminars, attractions, outdoor sporting goods and water sports gear.

The most important part of the Arkansas Sportshow is that the money raised is used by the Rotary Club of Jonesboro to support local charities. 

Projects like Rotary Club Park at Craighead Forest Park, the Healthy Smile Program, donating books to all third-graders in Jonesboro, scholarships for Region 8 high school seniors, the Shop With a Cop program, and the Rotary's Drug Take Back program. 

Heading out to the Convo this weekend is more than just fun, it's helping a great organization serve our community.

So grab the family and head out to the Arkansas Sportshow. Like or follow the event on Facebook at facebook.com/arsportshow . Combining fun with helping our community, will make this A Better Region 8.
