LITTLE ROCK — Former President Bill Clinton is to top the list of speakers at a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the completion of Greers Ferry Dam at Heber Springs.

On Thursday, it will have been 50 years since President John F. Kennedy stood at the dam and praised the programs of President Franklin Roosevelt as a way of bringing prosperity to the nation. The dedication was one of Kennedy's last public appearances before his assassination in Dallas the following month.

The Heber Springs Area Chamber of Commerce is expecting a large crowd for the event, which is to start at 11:30 a.m. The group urges people to arrive early. An overflow parking lot will open at 9:30 a.m.

The dam on the Little Red River is a popular recreation spot.
