Our Objectives: You've worked hard for your money l\/laybe you should consider
Ong and the Sam€_ putting a team of independent thinkers to work managing it for
you. Our financial advice is based on your needs and goals, not our
own. That's because we aren't required to push specific products
on our clients like many other brokers. We can give you unbiased
advice with the kind of attention to detail that goes way above
and beyond. That's the kind of independent thinking you can
expect from a Hilliard Lyons financial consultant. Because our
objectives are your objectives.

Cultural Enhancement
The UK Opera Theatre/Lexington Opera Society Opera Outreach Program takes op-
era to K - 6 schools and communities across Kentucky, particularly Eastern Kentucky,
that may not otherwise have opportunities to experience it. Led by Everett McCorvey
of the UK College of Fine Arts, the program’s ultimate goal is to increase the impact of
the fine arts and art in general within the Commonwealth, providing improvements to
the quality of life across the state.
This opera education outreach program introduces children to operatic story-telling
by using beloved and popular children’s stories as a backdrop, making the audience
comfortable and at ease with this new learning experience. After weeks of rehearsal at
UK, the one-act opera performances with full costumes and sets tour school auditori-
ums and gyms throughout the state.
