This morning on the Daily News Hour with Jim Bumgardner...
We celebrate National Creamsicle Day!
We've got your chance to win tickets to the 46th Annual Northwest Arkansas Bluegrass Festival beginning this Thursday at Beacon Park http://harrisondaily.com/people/th-northwest-arkansas-bluegrass-festival-begins-thursday/article_0f1c0cea-7e17-11e7-891b-7ff74c3fdf39.html
Today is also VJ Day – where we celebrate the allied Victory over Japan with some fascinating rare color footage from that day in 1945. As part of that reflection we'll introduce you to the smooching, salty sailor forever immortalized on the cover of LIFE magazine.
We've also put together an introduction for some and update for others from a man I'm very proud to call my friend: Former Army Ranger and Vietnam Veteran Gary Howard, who's taking a stand for all veterans past present and future. https://www.facebook.com/GarysStand/
Also as the kids are getting back to school, we're checking in with a couple of the amazing folks from Children's Charity Ministry: Vernon Martin and Stephanie Jean Hankins and finding out how you can help them in their mission to feed children throughout North Central Arkansas https://www.facebook.com/CCMThrift/
And since many of you may feel like a zombie this Monday morning, we want to tell you bout a really neat zombie comic book that's far from your average walking dead....https://www.facebook.com/lamebrainscomic/
