Families from the Quincy area can learn about science -- and have a good time in the process -- at Quincy University's biannual Science Family Fun Night this Friday.

The free event goes from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the lower level of the QU Student Center and is open to the public. Parking will be available in C Lot along 18th Street between Lind and Elm.

Science Family Fun Night is designed for children in kindergarten through fifth grade, but children of all ages are welcome to attend.

This particular session will focus on the science behind going to see a doctor or a veterinarian.

More information about the Science Family Fun Night is available by contacting Kimberly Hale, an associate professor of biological sciences, by email at

Silver Saukees: Pittsfield's state title team to reunite after 25 years
Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
