"It's Fun to Search and a Joy to Find"
Arkansas

When a Quester from San Franciso, CA, moved to Arkansas in 1970, she gathered together some of her new friends and formed Quapaw Chapter #519 in the Little Rock area.  By 1977 there were five more chapters:  Fairfield Bay #800; Petit Jean #819; La Petit Roche #822; Clara B. Eno #830; and Arkopolis #867.  Now, in 2015, there are thirteen chapters throughout the state.

On May 2, 1980, Arkansas' chapters became an "Organized Quester State", with the first state-wide meeting held in Little Rock.  The National President brought the State Quester Charter to the meeting and installed the first State officers.

Over the years, chapters have been formed and dissolved, but Arkansas' first chapter, Quapaw, is still meeting and actively supporting not only their local and state preservation and restoration projects, but the goals of The Questers International as they have for 45 years!
