TRAHC, INC. Responds to Updated State Guidelines

Texarkana, TX:  In response to Governor Abbott’s announcement to reopen Texas businesses and lifting the mask mandate effective March 10, 2021, Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council Senior Staff, Board President, and designated Board Members met to discuss current protocols and potential impacts of the upcoming changes to public facilities and events managed by the organization. 

            Overall safety of our staff and general public is of the utmost importance to TRAHC, INC./PTMC, while still providing entertainment and cultural development opportunities in premier facilities for our community.  After much deliberation, the decision was made to continue social distancing at the Perot Theatre and Regional Art Center, sanitize frequently touched surfaces, and encourage frequent handwashing or sanitizing. We highly encourage following current Center of Disease Control guidelines that include the above recommendations and wearing a mask but will no longer require the general public to wear masks in the Regional Arts Center, Arts on Main at Stewart Title, and Perot Theatre.  To encourage continued safety, masks will still be available upon entry of any building managed by TRAHC, INC and hand sanitizing stations are placed in high traffic areas of the buildings.             We will continue to watch Covid numbers in our area, evaluate patron and attendee responses, and modify policies as guidelines are updated to ensure safety compliance and continued community support.  Any questions or concerns may be addressed by contacting Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council at 903-792-8681 or Perot Theatre at 903-792-4992.

Texarkana, USA: Carl Standridge of Four States Retirement Group considers fixed index annuity options a number one choice for people planning retirements.   A fixed index annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company in which you make a lump-sum payment or series of payments and in return, receive regular income distributions at some point in the future. This type of annuity provides protection of principal in a down market, an opportunity for growth and the interest rate is guaranteed to never be less than zero. These annuities also offer a guaranteed minimum rate no matter if the markets suffer a loss. There are several benefits of a fixed annuity in addition to receiving a steady stream of income in retirement.
