Generally Speaking...

For many of us, summer means spending time on the golf course.  The Ozarks has such a rich history of notable golfers and courses.  We explore the history – as well as the future – of local golf in the newest documentary from the Ozarks Public Television production team.  Links to the Past, Fairways to the Future premieres August 21 at 8pm on OPT.  But you can see it even sooner!  Join us for the premiere party August 19 at Twin Oaks Country Club.  The film starts at 6pm, with a brief reception beginning at 5:30pm.  The screening is free, but space is limited.  Please RSVP to Taylor Vance (417-836-6256 or if you plan to attend.  We hope you’ll come out and help us celebrate one of our greatest missions at OPT – documenting, presenting and preserving the collective history of our region.

We also have some wonderful events lined up for our littlest viewers this month.  Join us for First Friday Art Walk on August 1 at the Creamery Arts Center.  We’ll have fun for all, with lots of activities for the kids.  And when the August heat sends you in search of indoor activities, stop by the Library Center on August 7 for a Sid the Science Kids extravaganza.  Kids will enjoy episode screenings, hands-on activities, and learning from local scientists.
