Buffalo National River Partners Fundraiser

bnrp,colorBuffalo National River Partners will host a fundraiser for Buffalo Point cabin furniture restoration on Friday, June 20 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Quality Inn Conference Center in Harrison. Many of the cabins and the furniture at Buffalo Point were built by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the late 1930s.

As a result time has taken its toll on the caned furniture. BNRP member Linda Glass is donating her time to re-cane the chairs, settees, and rocking chairs in the cabins. However, funds must be raised to provide the caning materials for her to finish the project.

There will be a silent auction which will include Buffalo River float trips, cabin stays, books by local authors as well as artwork. There will also be light hors d’ oeuvres, a chair caning demonstration by Linda and music by Harrison’s own, National Park Radio.

The event is free and open to the public. Auction items purchased will be by cash or check only.

If you are unable to attend the fundraiser, help us preserve this piece of history along the Buffalo National River. You can mail your tax deductible check to BNRP, P.O. Box 1914, Harrison, AR 72602. Please earmark your check ‘BP Furniture.”
