  All Day SIU Med School to Hold Golf Scramble for Camp COCO   Golfers are invited to form teams for the annual charity golf scramble in June benefiting the Camp COCO Children’s Cancer Fund at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. A shotgun start will begin the game at 12:30 p.m. Friday, June 28, at The Rail Golf Course, 1400 S. Club House Dr., Springfield. H. D. Smith Foundation is the presenting sponsor and Bunn is the premier sponsor of the four-person scramble.

The dinner features a silent auction. Sponsorships at various levels of support, including golf carts dedicated in honor or memory of a family member or friend, also are available. Registrations postmarked by mail or received electronically by June 7 will be entered into a special prize drawing. The COCO Children’s Cancer Fund supports the Camp and other projects for young patients. Now in its 28th year, Camp COCO is a summer camp sponsored by SIU Department of Pediatrics where kids with cancer and blood disorders and their siblings can spend a week enjoying typical camping activities. Camp COCO, which stands for Children’s Oncology Camp Organization, is totally supported by donations so that families do not have to pay to send a child to the medically supervised camp. The campers receive special attention from SIU’s pediatric staff and health professionals as well as various community volunteers. An estimated 140 downstate Illinois children are expected to attend Camp COCO this summer at a cost of $700 per child, which is provided by generous donations. This year’s camp will be held July 7 – 12 at Timber Pointe Outdoor Conference Center on Lake Bloomington. The first Camp COCO was held in 1986 for 40 pediatric patients and their siblings. Send checks for the scramble or sponsorships, payable to either Camp COCO or SIU Foundation, to the SIU Foundation, P.O. Box 19666, Springfield, IL 62794-9666.

  8:00PM 10:30PM Theater in the Park- The Crucible   This is a 1952 play by the American playwright Arthur Miller. When theatre is at its finest, it sheds light on the human condition, showing audiences both the very best and the very worst of what it means to be human. Arthur Miller's The Crucible gives us the broadest spectrum of this; the play is practically a naked bulb in a darkened room, baring ugliness and deprivation alongside the rare beauty of true faith and forgiveness. It speaks to two deplorable events at two different time periods in our American history: the Salem, Massachusetts witch trials of 1692, which is the setting of the play; and the communist McCarthy trials of the early 1950s, during which the play was written and of which the play serves as an allegory. But fundamentally, the characters and the emotional content of the play speak to any time period and any circumstance in which motivations are difficult to understand and in which it is wrongly perceived that *any* answer is better than *no* answer. All performances: $13 Adult, $11 Seniors, $8 Children (under 12). For reservations and to order, call 217-632-5440 or 1-800-710-9290. Box Office Hours : Monday through Saturday: 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Sundays: 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. http://www.theatreinthepark.net/index.html
