The Doctor is In ... Argenta

The UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Envoys advocacy group invites you to a Nov. 3 reception to meet some of our newest physicians, learn about the Cord Blood Bank of Arkansas from medical director Michele Fox, M.D., and share our excitement as we announce the first recipient of the $10,000 Seeds of Science grant award.

The reception will be 6-7:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 3 at Greg Thompson Fine Art, 429 Main St., in the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock.

There is no cost to attend and the event is open to the public.

The Cord Blood Bank of Arkansas opened this year. It is the first statewide-coverage cord blood bank in the nation to open with a mandate for public, private and research banking. Umbilical cord blood is collected following the birth of healthy children.

NOTE: Tonight is Boosters so you could come to Boosters & still make this reception!

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s monthly Sandwiching in History tour series will feature three houses in the Argenta Historic District at noon on Friday, November 4, 2011. Please encourage neighborhood residents and friends to attend! The event is free and open to the public. No registration required. All ages welcome.

The Sandwiching in History Tour of the Edgar B. Moseley House at 415 Willow St. in North Little Rock will be at noon on Friday, November 4, 2011. The Moseley House at 415 Willow St. is one of the most outstanding examples of the Craftsman style in the Argenta Historic District. In addition to the home’s exterior detailing, its original Craftsman-style interior remains intact with columns, built-in shelving, and a coffered ceiling. Moseley was a pharmacist at Hall Drug Store, which occupied the building at 324 Main St. in North Little Rock from 1903 to 1916, when Argenta Drug Store moved into the building. In 1917 Moseley constructed three similar Craftsman-style houses at the southwest corner of Fifth and Willow streets—415 Willow, 400 W. 5th, and 404 W. 5th. Moseley initially lived in the two-story house at 400 W. 5th Street. His daughter, Vivian, and her husband, Dr. B. L. Church, lived in the house at 415 Willow. For more information, call Rachel Silva at (501) 324-9788.

The tour will begin at noon in front of 415 Willow. Tour participants are in for a special treat because they will also be allowed to tour the house at 404 W. 5th and peek inside the larger Craftsman house at 400 W. 5th as well.
