Irish music set for March 16

2003-2004 Walton Arts & Ideas Series, was originally scheduled for
March 9, but was moved to March 16 because of a scheduling conflict.

Banish Misfortune takes audiences on
an ancient journey home through the rich cultural heritage of traditional
Celtic music. Their concert repertoire covers a collage of tunes gathered
from around the British Isles & America. This musical map provides
a diverse range of styles guaranteed to stir the heart, soul & spirit.
Sweet ballads, melodic airs and lyrical waltzes lend a romantic quality
to the more lilting tunes.
As always, faculty, staff and students can receive
one free ticket each for the performance.

Reading program honors alum
The Division of Education and the Robson
Library are sponsoring the Linda Grace Carcamo Memorial Junior Great
Books Reading Program, to be housed in the Robson Library. The Junior
Great Books are the classics in Childrens Literature, including
both English and Spanish selections.
Carcamo, a 2001 graduate of Ozarks pre-school
through fourth grade teacher education program, was an elementary teacher
in San Salvador, El Salvador. She died in a swimming accident last year
in El Salvador.
The Linda Grace Carcamo Memorial Committee believes
that she would be pleased with this tribute to her memory. Several people
have asked whether they might make a contribution to a memorial in her
name. Approximately $900 worth of books have already been ordered in
Lindas honor and we will be adding to the selection in the future.
Any person or group wishing to make a contribution to the fund may contact
George Stone, professor and chair of the Division of Education, at Ext.
