  All Day CWLP Every Drop Counts Poster Contest   City Water, Light and Power (CWLP) is excited to offer its first water conservation poster contest, “Every Drop Counts.” First, second and third grade students in schools located within the City of Springfield are invited to submit entries through their teachers. Posters should demonstrate water conservation in action, highlighting the need for everyone to conserve. Winning posters will be utilized in conjunction with National Drinking Water Week in May to promote the importance of one of our most important natural resources. Teachers should encourage students to draw a picture that illustrates one important point. Students should use large lettering, few words, heavy lines and strong colors. First place winners from each grade level will be given a certificate for a pizza party for their entire classroom. Second and third place winners will receive special award ribbons. In addition, the first 150 students to enter the contest will each receive a complimentary drawstring bag labeled – “SAVE WATER, SAVE ENERGY.” Every student who creates a poster will receive a certificate of participation. The Official Stuff The contest is open to all City of Springfield public and private first, second or third graders. 1. All posters must be drawn horizontally (landscape) on 11” x 17” white poster paper. 2. Students may use crayon, watercolors, poster paint, markers, ink, cut paper, tissue paper or fabric.

  8:00PM 10:30PM You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown   Springfield Theatre Centre presents You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown directed by Anna Bussing Feb. 22-24 and March 1-3, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 2 p.m. Preshow dinner on Friday, Feb. 22 at 6:30 p.m.! Synopsis: It's an average day in the life of Charlie Brown, all mixed in with the lives of his friends (both human and non-human) and strung together on the string of a single day, from bright uncertain morning to hopeful starlit evening. It seems to start off all right. Charlie is then left to his own musings as he eats his lunch on the school playground, complicated unbearably by the distant presence of his true love, the "little redheaded girl," who is always just out of sight. True love also seems to be the only unmanageable element in Lucy's solid life, which we discover as we watch her try to bulldoze her way through to her boyfriend Shroeder's sensitive, six-year-old musician's heart. Meanwhile Snoopy and Linus daydream and the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings. And then it is evening. The gathered friends end the day, realizing what makes them truly happy and leaving Lucy to make a very un-Lucy-like gesture: she tells Charlie Brown what a good man he is.
