The public is invited and encouraged to attend this year’s Sheriff’s Fun Day, where activities will include but are not limited to the following:

  • Fishing derby sponsored in part by the Jefferson County Soil & Conservation District along with the Arkansas      Game & Fish Commission *BRING YOUR OWN POLE (Bait will be provided)
