Community invited to celebrate Ohio University-Zanesville's 60th anniversary

ATHENS, Ohio (Sept. 20, 2006) -- The community is invited to celebrate 60 years of Ohio University-Zanesville on Saturday, Sept. 23, at 4:30 p.m. Participants can take advantage of the free concerts, cake, family activities, tours of the new wing connecting Elson and Herrold Halls and the chance to view Zanesville's first laser light show. 

The show will be hosted by master of ceremonies Brian Wagner of WHIZ and feature compositions by Charles Savage, instructor of music.

Visitors can join the Campus Quest to learn more about Ohio University-Zanesville and register for prizes. Along the quest, participants will have the opportunity to speak with professor and historian Mike Kline, who has been a campus fixture for 41 years. 

Quest seekers will also visit the Zanesville Campus Library art exhibit and catch the unveiling of "The Torch of Knowledge," Professor Gerald Westgerdes' latest artwork. An interactive patient simulation mannequin, the nursing department's latest learning tool, will be on site for demonstrations as well.

In addition to Campus Quest, children can participate in the Quest for Coins. They will have the opportunity to grab a flashlight and search for a variety of coins, including buffalo nickels, steel pennies, and even wheat pennies that were made the same year Ohio University-Zanesville began, 1946.

Guests are encouraged to bring picnic baskets, blankets and lawn chairs to settle in and enjoy the evening of concerts on the green. The Y-City Barbershop Chorus and the Rusty Knights will provide entertainment with a brief dedication of the new addition and recognition of donors and contributors. 

The evening will come to a climax with the laser light show, which will begin at 8 p.m. The audience will receive glow sticks and hear music from the past six decades while watching the phenomenal show produced by Lightwave International of Pittsburgh. 

The fun happens rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, the concerts will be held in Elson Hall Auditorium and the laser light show in the Littick Hall gymnasium.
