Money isn't just about dollars and cents. The ancient Aztecs used chocolate for money, and Yap Islanders used 500 lb stones! So what is money and how does it work? Now families, adults, and children can explore the history, science, math and economics behind money in Moneyville. A traveling exhibit from the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. This highly interactive traveling exhibit uses the familiar and fascinating subject of money to build math skills and promote economic literacy in a fun environment. On Thursday, June 13, 2013 11:00am MO State Treasurer Clint Zweifel will be talking to you about money, budgeting and how saving money is a huge part of financial literacy.

Book by N. Richard Nash
Based on the The Rainmaker, a 1954 play by N. Richard Nash
It's the Fourth of July, 1936, and the town of Three Point, Texas, is in the midst of a blistering heat wave and drought. H.C. Curry is a rancher who's desperate for rain. He's equally desperate to find a good husband for his daughter, Lizzie, whose sharp wit and blunt honesty intimidate most men. H.C. sets his matchmaking sights on File, the local sheriff. While File and Lizzie both thirst for love, they're also wary and defensive. Suddenly, a handsome stranger blows into town. Bill Starbuck, aka Tornado Johnson, is a charismatic conman who claims to be a "rainmaker" - for a price. Lizzie's father agrees to pay Starbuck $100 to make it rain within 24 hours. Lizzie sees through Starbuck's scam, but finds herself drawn to him. That evening brings soul-searching, revelations and the first flickers of love, as the two discuss their hopes and dreams. Meanwhile, Sheriff File is searching for Starbuck to arrest him. Seeing Starbuck with Lizzie, File realizes that he, too, is in love with her. The atmosphere is charged as stormclouds build over this Three Point love triangle!

Whether itâs because it is a safe place to call home, a great place to get a bite to eat or the perfect place to raise a family, many animals live at least part of their lives underground. Our friends from Dickerson Park Zoo will introduce us to some of them and help us understand why certain creatures prefer underground habitats.
