9. Be Part of the Turning Tide
Here’s to all Texarkanians who are stepping up and leading the way to turn around our region’s concerning economic reality by wearing masks.

If we want a new reality, we’ll need to be the change we want to see. “If we always do what we’ve always done, we’ll always get what we’ve always gotten.” Read more here.
