Whether you want to create something for the holidays or get away from the bustle, Fresh City Life My Branch has something for you this weekend!
Even if you haven't bought all your gifts yet, you know you'll have to wrap them! Take some time to do a relaxing craft that's also kind to the environment--Make a Cloth Gift Bag at Schlessman Family Branch Library on Saturday, December 1 at 10 a.m. These reusable bags are perfect for any small item and will give any gift that extra personal touch. We'll have lots of great fabric for you to choose from, but feel free to bring your own!
The holidays are coming! Whether you need recipe (or healthy eating!) tips, something to decorate with, or an idea for a special gift, Fresh City Life My Branch has something for you!
Plan on keeping your holidays healthy with Eating Healthy During the Holidays on Thursday, November 15 at 6 p.m. at the Ross-University Hills Branch Library. Traci Carpenter, MNT, is the Tamarac Whole Foods Market healthy eating specialist. She'll talk about eating well during the holidays, and you'll take home creative ideas and a stomach full of samples!
Have you had a chance to look at the November/December schedule of Fresh City Life My Branch events and classes yet? Here are some highlights!
On Saturday, November 10 at 2 p.m., celebrate Veterans Day with Army Bicycles: The Ride Stuff at Schlessman. Local, Pulitzer Prize winning author Jerry Cleveland explores how the military has used the bicycle and why it attracted the attention of commanders worldwide.
The time is coming when cool weather will encourage us to remain indoors. If you have children, you may soon hear the dreaded whine, "I'm bored. There's nothing to do!" I'm happy to report that these three books will provide hours of entertainment and family projects.
In a valiant effort to keep my children's screen time down and to preserve my sanity, I often resort to crafting with my kids. It's a good idea to keep some basic craft supplies on hand, but some of these projects may require a trip to the craft store with a supply list in hand. Alternately, try Goodwill or other thrift stores to pick up bags of fabric scraps or yarn, or get together with friends and combine craft supplies. These books are bound to keep little and big hands busy for the winter months. Some of these projects will also make great holiday gifts!
While Halloween is behind us, there are many more holidays coming up to celebrate connections, honor our ancestors, and thank our military. Use Fresh City Life My Branch adult cultural programming as a jumping off point for (or a break from) your fall & winter celebrations!
You'll have several opportunities to celebrate Dia de los Muertos in the next few days:
