On April 9, 2009, a tornado devastated Mena, Arkansas, wiping out about 600 homes and businesses, and thousands of trees. Diamond Bank, a Hot Springs-based financial institution, has started a program called ReGreen Mena to remove the debris left behind, replant hardwood trees, remove the stumps in the city’s cemetery, and help elderly citizens whose yards were destroyed by the storm landscape around their homes. To support the efforts, Mena natives in Fayetteville will host a benefit show, tonight at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville.
