Every summer the Springfield Regional Arts Council cooperates with the Springfield Community Center to present a six-week program for kids in Zones 1 and 2 who are served by the Community Center.  It's called "Arts in the Park"--Jordan Valley Park, to be exact, where the Arts Council's Creamery Arts Center offices are located. Each week during the six-week program, representatives  from Springfield's major visual and performing arts groups conduct week-long workshops with the kids based on each organization's specialty: the Symphony, Little Theatre, the Opera, the Art Museum, and so on.

A rewarding partnership lasting close to ten years has now resulted in an equally rewarding gift. The Springfield Community Center recently received a donation of a commercial-grade stove from the Springfield-Branson Chefs’ Association.

The center’s previous stove was aging, had become difficult to operate and could have possibly been a safety hazard. That’s according to Denise Gibson with Ozarks Food Harvest, whose member agencies includes the Springfield Community Center.
