We would like to Thank our friends at Kansas Power Mower (913-621-4484) at 1405 North 38th Street in Kansas City Kansas for their support. They have been helping Alcott with our weed eaters and mowers for the past several years. If you need small engine repair, tune-ups or just parts please contact them first. They are great people that have supported many not for profit organizations in the past and are a long time KCK business. Please show them your love.

They have never taken a tax write-off for helping the Alcott, so we thought that we would show them some love. How awesome are they? Good people making life better.

The Lord Mayors Company returns to Alcott!

Join us August 15, 2015 7pm as they have a Benefit the Alcott.

The LMC will present a

Silly side of Shakespeare

as an event to promote

Alcott’s Shakespeare In The Parking Lot VIII

“Loves, Labours, Lost” by William Shakespeare

$10 admission

Since 2004 the Lord Mayor’s Company has been performing, in their words, “Shakespeare the way it was meant to be seen, Short and Silly”. They have entertained through the Midwest but have missed performing publicly for their hometown Kansas City audiences for the last few years. To satisfy that urge, answer the pleas of local fans and to help raise money for a good cause, they will team with the Alcott Arts Center and present three of their Shakespearean Shorts on the evening of August 15th at the Kansas City, Kansas location of the Arts Center. That night -- for a donation of $10 -- guests can watch the troupe of the LMC present “The Scottish Play or Lord of the Thanes, Fellowship of the Sheep”, Shakespeare’s lost musical “Robio and Marionette” and “Romeo and Much Ado About a Shrew”. All the while, they will be helping forward the arts education mission of the Alcott and promoting the two weekends of performance in September of “Loves Labours Lost” at the annual Shakespeare In The Parking Lot held at the Arts Center. If this sounds like a fun evening to you, the Alcott and the LMC invite you to join them. The Alcott Arts Center is not ADA accessible.

If you were a FaceBook Friend to the Alcott you may have noticed that you don’t see us as your friend anymore.

Since we had to make changes to our Facebook site FB removed Alcott’s Friend page since we are a business. We had created a business page years ago when they didn’t have the business pages. When we found out through a nasty message three years ago we created the business page, we didn’t know why the friend page stayed active so we didn’t complain. We were still able to see all of our friends daily posts, so it was the best of both worlds. Last month FaceBook cut off all usage to our Alcott pages becuase we are still operating a business as a friend page. WWe thought that we had done it right but was blindsided by the revelation that we were wrong in our assumption.

So, we no longer get to see what is happening in ALL our Friends lives. We made the changes and transferred all the info over to the New Business Page. Well, we did that and in the process our “friends” should now have been changed to “Likes” for our Business page, if not please “Like” and “Follow” us so that you will see our posts! If it did change your “Friend” status to a “Like” you may have to “Follow” us also. We are not sure if it does that part automatically. Please “follow” our page in order for us to keep our data base current and because we had so many “Friends”that we know we have lost and want you to know that we are still your friends, just not bby Facebook’s standards.  So, if your friend designation is now gone with Alcott please LIKE us and FOLLOW us so that you will get our posts and can follow our progress. THANKS !
