The Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism issued a "Proclamation of Thanks" to Alice Walton of the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville on Tuesday, January 29th. Bill Barnes, owner and CEO of Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa, is a commissioner among the many wonderful representatives from different businesses and regions in our state. Commissioners voted and signed the proclamation in November, 2012. On Tuesday, Commissioners were treated to a lunch and tour of Crystal Bridges - and afterward presented Alice with this esteemed "thank you" from the Arkansas tourism industry. We are excited to share these images here - and join with our commissioners in excitement and gratitude to Ms. Walton and the museum for the many excellent things each has brought to our little southern state - with SO MUCH TO OFFER!
