Weddleville group offers bean dinner

The Weddleville Old Settlers Bean Dinner will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 15 at the historic Carr High School, 10059 W. County Road 250S, Medora.

The free community meal will feature open-fire cooked beans, cornbread, coleslaw and dessert. Anyone planning to attend also can bring their favorite pitch-in dinner dish.

Historically, the old settlers of the Pea Ridge area conducted a homecoming picnic on the third Saturday in August, according to a news release from Weddleville Cemetery Association.

The association has revived this tradition with a free bean dinner and pitch-in at the high school, five miles west of Medora on County Road 250S.

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy a day in the country and visit with friends, old and new. An update will be given about the restoration progress and ongoing maintenance of the high school, placed on the National Register of Historic Places on Dec. 15, 2011, and plans for its use by the community.
