501 LIFE publishes May issue; Channel 4 segment on Monday

The May edition of 501 LIFE – which features a variety of stories related to “Youth” – will be distributed this week.

“This month, 501 LIFE is proud once again to celebrate one of our area’s most precious resources – our youth!” said 501 LIFE publisher/editor Sonja J. Keith.

“There are many wonderful youth programs in Central Arkansas, and for this issue, we selected the Girl Scouts on the occasion of the group’s 100th anniversary for this month’s cover story.”

The May issue will be featured on the KARK Channel 4 “Arkansas Today” show on Monday, April 30. Each month, Keith presents information about the current issue.
