Sending mixed signals

It cost Springfield too much money to rescind the education tax for a weekend, but we can pay for people to staff and keep open the Discovery Center.

Discovery Center Free Day!

19 10 2008

I wanted to pass this along for an event tomorrow:

Discovery Center Free Family Fun Day

Sunday October 19th 1-5pm

Discovery Center & Midwest Dairy Association presents The “People Behind the Product Free Day”.

Bring a non-perishable food item as admission to donate to Ozarks Food Harvest.

Learn more about how dairy farmers care for their animals and protect the land while producing quality milk that is wholesome and nutritious. Listen to a Missouri dairy farmer talk more about dairy farming, animal care and land and water preservation. Speak with a registered dietitian about the importance of 3-A-Day of Dairy and how three daily servings of low-fat milk, cheese or yogurt helps build strong bones and healthy bodies. Other activities will include butter making and recipe demonstrations, as well as milk mustache photographs. Information on dairy farming and dairy nutrition, including recipe and nutrition tips, will be available to take home.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Questions check the website at or call at 862-9910.

What mixed signals? The Discovery Center is a non-profit not owned by the city.
