HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (April 9, 2012) – The past of the Crystal Ballroom in the Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa met the future recently when Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe hosted a Fifty for the Future meeting in the historic space.
The Crystal Ballroom, which has been closed for the past several months, has been restored and refurbished to a new grandeur. And it’s only fitting that the first prestigious function launched in the “new” ballroom was a gathering of the city’s top business, civic and government leaders to discuss the future.
Gov. Beebe told the crowd of about 300 that the Arlington’s Crystal Ballroom is “packed with personal memories.”
“I never cease to be amazed that every time I come into this room, this hotel, it seems to bring back more and more memories of the countless conventions, tourism activities and meetings that I participated in here,” Beebe said.
