Citizen of the Week

Thursday, August 30, 2012

The nominator of this week's CoWs says they will be a familiar sight to anyone who has lived in Eureka for any length of time or enjoyed the Pine Mountain Jamboree. Mike and Dale Bishop are the owner/operators of the Pine Mountain Theater. In addition, they both perform in the jamboree. Mike is the President and CEO of the Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, and Dale also runs the Lady Eureka Boutique and the Village Ice Cream Shop. Mike and Dale have been working very hard to help get the Victorian Inn back into a condition that would allow for it to once again be a useful community asset. Both are great ambassadors for Eureka Springs and spend countless hours promoting our fair village. Mike and Dale have organized and performed in benefit shows for both the Good Shepherd Humane Society and the Wildflowers Chapel Food Bank. Both are involved in the Bloodhound Rescue. Mike has served on the Mayor's Art Council and the North Arkansas Tourism Association. As President and CEO of the Chamber, Mike responds to community and chamber requests 24/7. For all these reasons and more, the Bishops make great candidates for Citizen of the Week.
