Topeka Area Massing of Colors and Memorial Rededication
Apr 27, 2013 1:00 PM
All Wars Memorial Area of Gage Park ( 10th &Gage)
The Massing of Colors Ceremony is a patriotic event where Colors and Color Guards representing many military, patriotic, scouting, veteran, and civic organizations assemble en masse. It focuses on the positive aspects of our nation by acknowledging our heritage of freedom and its symbolic representation – the flag of the United States. The ceremony is relatively short but moving and meaningful. Respect and honor is rendered to the flag. Homage is paid to those who struggled to preserve our freedom, and the people who attend are imbued with patriotism and love of country. The Massing of Colors ceremony is dedicated to the memory of military service members who have given their lives to preserve our liberties. It also honors those who have served, and those who are serving to ensure our continued freedom and to preserve our military heritage. Approximately 40 color guards from active and reserve components of the military, area ROTCs, area JROTCs and governmental and patriotic organizations will participate in the Massing of the Colors. The April 27, 2013 ceremony is free and open to the public. Guests are asked to bring their own lawn chairs and arrive and be seated by 12:45 p.m.

We're making the impact of arthritis unacceptable and taking a stand, moving together to help prevent and treat this serious and painful disease through research, education and community programs.
Participants walk for friends or family members with arthritis, and those with arthritis wear blue hats to signify their action to take control of their condition. The event features a three-mile and one-mile course, with arthritis information and activities for the entire family. Pet owners are encouraged to bring their dogs at participating events.

The Mulvane Art Museum is located at 17th and Jewell Streets on the campus of Washburn University.
Small Deaths, an exhibit of hand-colored photographs by Arizona artist Kate Breakey will be on exhibit at the Mulvane Art Museum February 1-June 9, 2013.This exhibit is on loan from the Whittliff Gallery of Southwestern & Mexican Photography, an archive and creative center established at Southwest Texas State University, San Marcos, TX, to celebrate the photographic arts.
Since her childhood in South Australia, photographer-artist Kate Breakey has been moved by the often unnoticed animals that live, and die, in our proximity. She has taken care to memorialize these tiny creatures--young birds too small to fly, the careless lizard--in her hand-colored, large format photographs. These delicate and quite common animals--sensitively portrayed and vibrantly colored--seem, quite paradoxically, to come alive again.
The exhibit will open with a reception on Friday, February 1 from 5-8pm.
Museum, ArtLab and Gift Shop hours are Tuesday 10-7, Wednesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday and Sunday 1-4.
Admission to the Museum and the ArtLab are free and open to the public. Free parking is conveniently located to the west of the Museum.
