This spring event will have teams tend to areas around the community walking trail that circles the duck pond and SAU farm in coordination with Leadership Magnolia’s “Light up the SAU Walking Trail” project and SAU’s upcoming Community Playground initiative. Other outdoor enthusiasts will update MMB’s landscaping plots on Main Street with new flowers and mulch.

Other groups will return to the new facility of the Columbia County Senior Meals Service to help with indoor and outdoor renovation needs. The building was formerly Meadowbrook Lodge Nursing Home, and is located at 600 Leila Street. Other projects will be completed at the CCAPS Animal Shelter.

Volunteers are asked to wear pants and closed-toe shoes. MMB will be providing supplies and equipment, but anyone who can bring a mower, chain saw, and/or weed-eaters is encouraged to do so.

Previous Making Magnolia Blossom “Big Splash” events have organized hundreds to make improvements along primary city streets, local business facades, and public areas around the downtown square. MMB is a community-involvement organization at Southern Arkansas University. A group of staff, faculty, and students started MMB in 2014, and more than 500 volunteers from SAU and the community contributed time and effort at the initial Big Splash Saturday event. Since then, MMB has hosted several Big Splash events, as well as several Second Saturday events which partner with area organizations to complete needed projects. MMB has completed dozens of city improvement projects in its first year, and was awarded by the Arkansas Economic Development Commission the Volunteer of the Year Award in August of 2015.
