  1. Table Rock Lake Shoreline Cleanup
    • The 20th annual Table Rock Lake Shoreline Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 4.

      Since 2001 we have removed over 283 tons of trash and recycled almost 4,600 tires from the shorelines of Table Rock Lake. These impressive results are only possible with the support and dedication of volunteers like you!

      We need your continued support for the Cleanup again this year. Form a team, become a business sponsor (if not already), and help us continue to keep our lake clean and beautiful. If you are unable to organize a team, encourage a neighbor or friend to take the reins this year, and pass this information on to them. We would also appreciate reports from you on any locations you are aware of that need cleaning up. You can contact me by e-mail at ronna@ozarkswaterwatch.org or call 417-739-5001.

      Cleanup supplies are provided and will be ready for you to pick up starting March 27 (locations below).

      The Cleanup takes place anywhere along the almost 800 miles of shoreline. We’ve had over 100 teams and 1,000 volunteers some years and hope to do it again! Teams are made up of families, businesses, home owners associations, church groups, student groups, organizations, scouts, etc. Your team can work morning, afternoon, on Saturday or Sunday. (Roll-off dumpsters only available Friday 4/3 – Monday 4/6). Choose a location you’re familiar with, move to another location, or we can help you coordinate an area for your team to cleanup.

      Use the Volunteer and Trash Tracking Sheet to track your team and cleanup location for us! Please return the Volunteer and Trash Tracking Sheet to our office by April 17. Volunteer Sheets and dumpster maps can also be found on our website ozarkswaterwatch.org. All volunteers will receive a t-shirt and each family gets a coupon for a free night of camping at any Table Rock Lake Corps of Engineers campground! We love to see photos of your team! Remember your camera and send a few choice photos to us at contact@ozarkswaterwatch.org if you’d like to share your Shoreline Cleanup memories. Please wear sturdy shoes, use a lifejacket while on docks or boats, dress appropriately, have fun and be safe!

  1. * Cancelled * Heart and Vascular Lunch & Learn - 11:30 am
    • * This event has been cancelled due to coronavirus *  CoxHealth Heart Center Branson cardiologist Dr. Suthipong Soontrapa, known by his patients as “Dr. Sam,” will be talking about common heart and vascular problems during “60 Minutes with Dr. Sam,” a free lunch and learn event. The event, which is part of the 2020 Skaggs Foundation Speaker Series, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 9 at Stone Castle Hotel and Conference Center, 3050 Green Mountain Dr., Branson. “Many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices,” says Dr. Soontrapa. “With so much misinformation out there and frequently changing guidelines, it’s hard to decipher which recommendations to follow. During my presentation, I’ll be addressing different forms of cardiovascular disease, complications from the disease and treatment options as well as giving good tips on living a heart-healthy lifestyle.” An estimated 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year, equating to about 1 in every 4 deaths. Heart disease is not just a national problem, however. “Taney County Health Department has identified heart disease as the No. 1 cause of death locally,” explains Skaggs Foundation President Meghan Connell. “Taking on important health topics such as heart disease, and having local experts like Dr. Sam available is exactly why the foundation hosts our annual Speaker Series.” The luncheon is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Registration closes April 2 or when capacity is reached. To reserve your seat, call 417-269-INFO (4636).

His congregation meets in Branson and includes Jewish believers and Christians interested in learning about the Hebrew roots of Christianity.“A Messianic Passover Seder is really a rehearsal for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, as prophesied in the Bible,” Storch explained. “Essentially, it is what the church knows as communion, but in much greater detail. It is something that every Christian should experience.”The Tabernacle holds Shabbat (Sabbath) services at 11:00 AM every Saturday.
