The event, which will be held at the museum’s office at 14 North 3rd Street in Fort Smith, is free and open to the public.
“Bring your lunch, and come learn about the great work the U.S. Marshals Service is doing right here in Fort Smith,” said Leslie Higgins, director of education for the U.S. Marshals Museum. “We look forward to seeing you at the Lunch & Learn on Friday.”
Friday’s Lunch & Learn will feature Chief Deputy Dewaine Allen who is currently serving his 13th year with the U.S. Marshals Service in the Western District of Arkansas.
Headquartered in Fort Smith, the Western District of Arkansas covers 34 counties and 24,000 square miles from the Missouri to Louisiana state line.
