  All Day Dog Days of Spring   Dogs are faithful, loyal, and love their owners without question. Whether young or old, rich or poor, clever or dull, most dog owners love their pets as much, if not more as their family members. The upcoming “Dog Days of Spring” event will be hosted to honor these beloved dogs and their special family connection. “Dog Days of Spring” event captures a photographic portrait of your family dog. A portrait you are sure to treasure a lifetime. This event will consist of a portrait session of a family dog with session fees being donated to the Animal Protective League (APL). APL is partnering with Terry Farmer Photography this spring to promote awareness and raise funds for APL’s important animal welfare work. APL is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for ill, injured, abused or homeless animals, and coordinating the adoption of those animals with responsible pet owners. APL also operates a high quality, lowcost spay/neuter clinic that is helping to end animal overpopulation. APL gives priority to sick and injured strays in our community. Each year, with the help of generous donors APL is able to house, rehabilitate, and adopt out, over 1,500 animals every year! Supporting “Dog Days of Spring” and APL are local personalities including Justin Fowler (The State JournalRegister), Rick Brandt (Brandt Consolidated), Jeff Ball (Hanson Professional Services), Lucy Bagot (Ace Hardware), Bob Ritz (St. John’s Hospital), and Susan Koch (University of Illinois Springfield) to name a few.

  6:00PM 9:00PM Dramatic Reading from Widows of Whitechapel   You’ve, no doubt, heard the tales of Jack the Ripper, but have you ever stopped to wonder about the victims who were brutally and senselessly murdered? Why is it that society honors criminals by telling their story again and again? What about those who were directly affected by the crime? THE VICTIMS? Widows of Whitechapel gives a voice to victims. Creatively set in London during a “Jack The Ripper” Tour, victims come to life to tell their side of the story. The play allows audience members to explore such concepts as victim blame and media portrayal of criminal activity. Additionally, it offers the opportunity to reflect upon social responsibility to victims in the aftermath of a crime. If you have never stopped to think about the victim behind the bad guy, Widows of Whitechapel will provide that spark. In honor of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, the Crime Victims’ Memorial Peace Garden (CVMPG) is hosting a dramatic reading of excerpts from The Widows of Whitechapel under the direction of local playwright, Amy Sayre Baptista in partnership with Erin’s Pavilion at Southwind Park on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 6:30pm. The event is free and open to all. A Victim Services Provider Fair will be held in conjunction with the event. Resource materials on the topics of victimization, trauma, recovery, mental health, criminal and civil justice, and the types of services available to victims of crime to include Crime Victims’ Compensation will be on display and available to attendees. The Victim Service Providers’ Fair is designed to link governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations to create a better referral network for victims. CVMPG serves as the umbrella for which other individuals, agencies and organizations who are committed to supporting victims can partner to help raise awareness of crime victims’ rights and services. Participation in the Victim Services Provider Fair is free. Anyone interested in participating or providing resource materials, should contact Sandra Kemp, Director, CVMPG at 636-579-2736 or sk.kemp@yahoo.com. Events are scheduled for Thursday, April 18, 2013 at Erin’s Pavilion, 4965 South Second Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the Victim Services Provider Fair. The Laramie Project will begin promptly at 7 p.m. The first 50 attendees will receive an official National Crime Victims’ Rights Week goodie bag which includes a t-shirt, identity theft protection kit, a copy of the book A Face In the Crowd, Forget Me Not seed packets, a booklet about on internet safety, a bookmark and magnet imprinted with hotline numbers for national organizations who serve victims of crime and much more. The evening will conclude with an after show discussion and a candlelight vigil as an homage to crime victims everywhere. To ensure adequate seating, groups larger than 5 are requested to contact Sandra Kemp at 636-579-2736 or sk.kemp@yahoo.com. Event is made possible through a Community Awareness Project Grant provided by the Office for Victims of Crime, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. About National Crime Victims’ Rights Week: In 1982, President Ronald Reagan formed a Task Force to explore how victims were treated throughout the criminal justice process. In response to those findings, he signed the Victims’ of Crime Act (VOCA) into law. Created to provide assistance to victims in the aftermath of a crime, VOCA is funded through fines and penalties paid by convicted federal offenders. No tax dollars are used. VOCA helps to finance state crime victim compensation programs and local crisis response centers. Examples include those who serve rape victims, victims of domestic violence, and victims of child abuse and neglect, just to name a few. In addition, personnel assigned the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Federal Bureau of Investigation who provide direct services to victims are paid through VOCA funding. Each year since 1981, communities nationwide have been encouraged to raise awareness of crime victims’ rights. About Crime Victims’ Memorial Peace Garden: The Crime Victims’ Memorial Peace Garden was born 3 years ago during a National Crime Victims’ Rights Week planning meeting. Once fully developed, CVMPG will provide a place for victims of crime and those who support them to reflect, honor, and heal.

  8:00PM 10:30PM Always ... Patsy Cline   Roxy Theatricals presents Always ... Patsy Cline, April 18-21 starring Lori Ann McCabe as Patsy Cline and Sandra Fritz as Louise Seger. Featuring The Bodacious Bobcats: Doug Hahn, Mary E. Myers, Gary Davis and Robb Stark. "AlwaysPatsy Cline" is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a 1963 plane crash. The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death. Told through the memories of Louise, this charming show combines down home humor, heartfelt emotion, and over two-dozen of Patsy Cline's unforgettable hits: "Crazy," "I Fall to Pieces," "Sweet Dreams," "Walking After Midnight" and more. The title of the show was inspired by Patsy's letters to Seger, which were consistently signed, "Love Always ... Patsy Cline." Tickets $18 in advance, $20 day of show Seniors (60 ) and Children (12 and under) save $2 on Sunday performances.
