Do you love gardening? Is cooking your passion? We have a variety of talented programmers who provide free adult cultural events like arts and crafts, cooking demonstrations, gardening classes, guitar lessons, film discussions, sewing sessions, historical field trips, parenting classes, book clubs, painting lessons, and so much more. How do you like to spend your free time? What have you been dying to learn or try? Tell us what you're interested in and we'll see what we can do!
Joan Crawford filmed several public service ads to promote American grocery stores, but you can't miss the product placement for the company for whom she was really shilling. This nostalgic 1965 advertisement is a reminder that we need to take charge of our own eating and food choices. Unless you'd prefer Joan to do all of your shopping for you. Which I kind of would.
Our Chef Shellie brings great information and tasty sampling to our cooking event this Saturday.
