Open House Reminder - and "out of the mouth of a child."

Compass Music and Arts Foundation Open Day 
Thursday June 23rd, 2pm-8pm 
at the Compass Music and Arts Center, Park Village, Brandon
The Compass Music and Arts Foundation is holding an open day to show some of the work of the Foundation over the past three years. Members of the Foundation Board will be available to talk with Foundation friends, members, and visitors about our work. Stephen Sutton will also be showing visitors around the greatly enhanced Phonograph Rooms and giving demonstrations on how some of these vintage recording machines operate. Arthur Doty will be placing the "Golden Spike" in the Model Otter Creek Railway and running the trains around the tracks for all train enthusiasts to enjoy. Laura King will be reading stories to children in the Children's room (starting at 4:30), complete with the help of puppets - and there will be free ice cream for all visitors, courtesy of Ben and Jerry's. The event is free. Visitors can also enjoy The Sky's the Limit pastel exhibit in the Main Hall, browse the Treasure Chest and Bagatelles stores, visit the Divine Art CD Store, buy from the Farmer's Market and enjoy Mexican Food, for purchase, at the Heart and Soul cafe. 

And - out of the mouth of a child...

Eavesdropping on some students getting ready to leave after an afternoon at Compass learning about fiber arts, I heard a 3rd grader sigh, "I just love this place! I could stay all day." I looked over at the teacher, also listening, who said, "She needs things like this. They all do-a place outside of the box."
