  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.

  1:00PM 4:00PM Maple Syrup Time   Each year, on four weekends in late February and early March, Lincoln Memorial Garden celebrates this gift from nature by inviting the public to take part in the tradition of collecting and boiling sweet sap from sugar maple trees. The Garden’s expert staff and volunteers will serve as guides. You can watch and participate at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday on two weekends in February -- the 16th-17th and the 23rd-24th – and two weekends in March -- the 2nd-3rd and the 9th-10th. The event is free. Be sure to dress in warm clothing and wear footwear suitable for the possibility of muddy or slippery ground. We’ll meet for a five- to 10-minute orientation inside the Garden’s Nature Center before heading into the woods to identify the perfect trees for tapping. After drilling a small hole into a tree trunk and inserting a spile, or spout, we’ll see the watery sap begin to flow -- if the night has been cold and the day is warm. Next, we’ll take sap to the evaporation station where it will be boiled until only the sweet syrup remains. You can look forward to tasting the sap when it comes out of the tree and again after it has been transformed into syrup. Work has its own rewards. After the Garden’s trees are tapped for the season, it’ll be time to pour maple syrup on fluffy pancakes and sizzling sausages. Everyone is invited to partake, of course, as we host our annual Pancake and Sausage Breakfast in the Nature Center. The event also features a Silent Auction fundraiser stocked with treasures and services donated by individuals and area businesses. The breakfast will be held two consecutive weekends in March, the 16th-17th and the 23rd-24th. Breakfast will be served on those Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to Noon. The auction offerings will be on display in the Nature Center throughout. Reservations are necessary for this popular breakfast to avoid the possibility of being turned away. Cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Please make reservations by calling 217-529-1111.

  2:00PM 4:30PM 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.
