Krin Collins
Organizer for Arkie Newbies

Although having a 'real job' pays the bills and is rewarding in its own right, call it the mid-life crazies, but I spend what time I have to spare showing fellow human beings the great things there are about Arkansas in my role as Organizer and Host of a group on Meetup.com called 'Arkie Newbies'. 

With membership growing in my free social group, my energy is expended in seeking out and finding what new Arkansans would, as a group, enjoy in recreation, history, culinary inclinations and the like.

Occasionally I let 'pre-existing Arkansans' join my group because gosh, Arkansas may not seem sometimes like it has a lot going on compared to some locales, but many locals just haven't looked hard enough.   I find it hard NOT to want to do everything there is to be done!  I need a clone of myself to help out.
