It’s December once again and, if you’re like me, you’re wondering where on earth this year has gone. I hope 2015 has given you many reasons to smile – doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
It certainly makes me smile to think about the thousands of people around the Ozarks who spent time with Ozarks Public Television this year...and whose lives were made a bit brighter by what they saw. Families found a new friend in a familiar setting on Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. Generations of viewers learned more about one of America’s most legendary filmmakers and his magical legacy in “Walt Disney” on American Experience. Masterpiece fans rang in the year with season five of Downton Abbey, and found a new must-see drama in Indian Summers this fall. History buffs went behind the curtain with Setting the Stage: Springfield Little Theatre, and traveled back in time with Ozark Air Lines: The Sky's The Limit!. And Great Performances gave arts lovers a front row seat for everything from “Billy Elliot: The Musical” to “Unity – The Latin Tribute to Michael Jackson”.
It’s been a good year on public television, and each moment was brought to you by the support and generosity of our members. As you think about your end-of-year charitable giving, remember that gifts to Ozarks Public Television are tax-deductible. And each time you turn on your television in 2016, you will see your contribution at work – entertaining, educating and enlightening the entire community.
Thank you for supporting your public television station this year. From our family to yours, Ozarks Public Broadcasting wishes you the happiest of holiday seasons.
