Hank Thompson Day Celebration, Sunday

April 28th, 2010 by

514309214209_0_bg.jpg

In 1991, Mayor Harold West proclaimed May 4, as “Hank Thompson Day” in Monticello, AR. The dedication of a little league field was named in his honor at Jordan Park, Hwy. 278 East.

The family is hosting the “ Hank Thompson Day Celebration” on Sunday, May 2, 2010 @ 3:00 pm to be held at the little league field named in his honor.

Free Food and drinks will be served, activities for the children and fellowship for the community as well. The recipient of the second memorial scholarship will also be named during the celebration.

Everyone is invited to attend and join in some family fun in honor of our beloved Hank Thompson.

In case of inclement weather the event will be inside the Sadie Johnson Community Building at the same address.

  1. I’m sorry for missing the celebration of a very good friend of mine. Hank Thompson was a assett to Monticello. I still miss talking to him. I remember when the Drew County Baseball fields were named for Hank. I can’t think of a more fitting honor. I played baseball with Hank, but what I remember most was his smile and love for his family. I’ve been friends with the Thompson family for years. I hate that I missed this celebration. I wish more people could have known him and what he stood for. He will always be a great memory to me. I wish the best to his family.

  2. What an excellent idea,honoring HANK this way.I,m sure the celebration was fun but a scholarship fund is even better. This way we can help some other Student further their education . Lisa, Angela and the rest of the family my hat’s off to you. Love Judy Brooks Hudspeth

    I went to school with Hank and he was such a joy to know I think of him often such a great guy.
