Generally Speaking...

When kids are inside watching television, PBS meets them there with quality and age-appropriate programs that parents trust—and kids love.  But we all know that it’s also important for kids to get outside – to play, to explore and to learn.  That’s why PBS and OPT spend the month of April encouraging children and families to Explore the Outdoors.  Visit www.optv.org to learn more about the Explore the Outdoors initiative, and be sure to join us at the Explore the Outdoors Community Wide Play Day on April 29, from 10am-2pm at Fassnight Park.  The Play Day is a great family activity, with booths, games and fun for all ages.  We hope to see you there!

And don’t forget to tune in on Saturday, April 1 for the Spring TeleAuction.  The OPT TeleAuction is a longstanding tradition that offers a great chance to bid on a variety of items and gift certificates to benefit the station.  So many folks across the Ozarks look forward to this event each year, and I’m always amazed at how many more are finding it for the very first time.  The TeleAuction has changed quite a bit over the years, but one important thing remains – each and every dollar raised goes to fund the purchase and broadcast of the programs that you enjoy on OPT.  So thank you for tuning in and supporting the station.  As they say...bid early and bid often!
