Generally Speaking...

As you likely know, Ozarks Public Broadcasting is nearing the end of its year-long 40th anniversary celebration.  It’s been a wonderful time to connect and reconnect with so many past volunteers, employees, donors and friends of the stations.  Many times this year, I’ve found myself looking back – at the people, the milestones and the challenges that have defined public broadcasting in the Ozarks. 

One of this month’s anniversary events, however, is all about looking forward...and considering the future of our community.  On April 28, we’re hosting a Legacy Circle Informational Luncheon.  This luncheon is a service to our most loyal donors – a chance to learn more about planned giving and how it can benefit you, your family, and your favorite charitable organizations.  We’ll provide lunch, a short presentation by local estate planning experts, and an opportunity for guests to have their questions answered by professionals.

I’ve mentioned here before the tremendous impact estate gifts have made in OPT’s ability to serve our community over the years.  This luncheon, however, is meant to serve a much broader purpose.  Whether it’s a gift to Ozarks Public Broadcasting, or one of the many other worthy organizations in the area, planned giving makes a real difference in our community.  I hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity to learn about the benefits – to you and your community – of charitable estate giving. 

This event is free, but we do ask that you RVSP.  You can do that by phone (417-836-3506) or email (  I hope to see you there.
