Need something to do? Try Thursday

March 21, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
While working on lining up stories last week I noticed a very interesting trend. It looks like Thursday night (March 24) has more than its share of events. Here’s a rundown of some events going on that night. There is a public reptile show at 7 p.m. at GrimesFarm as a wildlife specialist plans to bring live snakes and turtles. Our scaly friends will no doubt create for an interesting atmosphere. Marshalltown Community College professor Steve Muntz will debut his documentary film about his walk across Iowa at 7 p.m. at the Orpheum, which should prove to be interesting. If you are feeling in the mood to learn about history there will be a program on the Tuskegee Airmen at 6 p.m. at the Toledo Public Library. This will be a chance to learn about the nation’s first African American military pilots presented by the African American Museum of Iowa. Three interesting public events may not sound like much but I’d say that’s not bad for our little neck of the woods for one night. And here’s another incentive — all the programs are free. So there you go. You have no excuse to spend Thursday cooped up at home.
