Missouri's Sunshine Law is meant to ensure that governmental bodies can't conduct business in secret by requiring most meetings, records, votes, actions, and deliberations to be open to the public. Speaker Nathan Nickolaus will discuss the specific provisions of the law and how well it works. You'll learn about some recent cases in which the public has benefited from open government and ponder the question of whether closed meetings are ever justified. Nickolaus is a former municipal attorney and author of "The Sunshine Law" published by the Missouri Bar Association. His talk will be followed by an open Q & A session. Co-sponsored by the Missouri Sunshine Coalition and the League of Women Voters. Refreshments at 6:30 p.m.

Come enjoy fiddle tunes in the New England tradition from Rodney Miller with Max Newman on guitar. New England has always been a melting pot of Irish, Scot and Canadian fiddle tunes, each with their own musical traditions. Since the early 1970s, many new tunes have been composed and added to the traditional fiddle repertoire, making it vibrant and exciting music to dance and listen to. Max and Rodney will be playing a sampler of tunes both old and new. It's toe-tapping music at its best. This performance is co-sponsored by the Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers and is a part of their Spring Breakdown Dance Weekend. Adults and teens.
