Notes from the President & CEO - November 2013


November 7th brings a reunion of old friends on WTVP, and at the same time, celebrates a gathering of the new.

Our old friend and public television favorite, Master glass artist Dale Chihuly, will be featured on WTVP on November 7, prior to the opening of his show at the Peoria Riverfront Museum. This will be a terrific opportunity to become re-acquainted with Chihuly’s superb glass creations that grace exotic venues across the world and close to home. From the canals of Venice to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis to the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago, and now to the Peoria Riverfront, Chihuly’s masterworks emulate and enhance the natural world with grace, beauty and elegance. Obviously, I am a fan.

You can get advance tickets to the Chilhuly show at the PRM, by tuning in at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 7, when WTVP partners with our friends and colleagues from WILL-TV in Champaign to offer an easy opportunity to join or renew your membership in either station. In addition to tickets, other thank you gifts will be available, and you won’t want to miss information on other events and screenings of Chihuly programs.

Speaking of WILL, our partnership mentioned in last month’s guide continues apace. We are exploring ways to collaborate on projects and to cost-effectively produce and deliver new programs and services to you. Both stations jealously guard the resources you provide through your memberships and gifts to each station. We recognize the trust you place in us to use your contributions wisely, and we are working to assure that we get a bigger return on your investment together than we can individually.

Finally, November is the month when the nation officially stops to give thanks for all the blessings received during the year. When I sit down with my family on Thanksgiving, please know that I will be remembering you and your generosity to WTVP throughout the year. Thank you for your continuing support, and on behalf of the Board of Directors and staff of WTVP, please accept our sincere wishes for a very happy Thanksgiving for you and yours.
