Life Balance Course
All held in the meeting room.
May 21st – Life Balance #1 Work smarter. Not harder. 6-7:30 p.m.
Do you ever feel like there are not enough hours in the day to do what you need to do? Time management helps you: keep a healthy balance between your work time, relaxation time and family time.
- accomplish priority items
- have time to do what you want without feeling guilty
- gain a sense of accomplishment
- reduce stress by not wasting time on what is not important
The next sessions are as follows:
June 4th – Life Balance #2 Stress motivation or madness?
June 18th – Life Balance #3 balance work and family
Professionally trained chef Brian Donovan will teach how to make ganache (a chocolate and cream glaze or filling) and sabayon (a light egg-based dessert) using a double boiler. The program will be held in the Flewharty-Powell Annex. There is a $5.00 fee to cover the cost of ingredients.
Looking for new ideas for appetizers or snacks to take to a club meeting or some other event, or just to serve when you have guests? In this class we will be making at least 3 snacks or appetizers: tomato bruschetta, deviled pecans, and a bacon cheese ring. Participants will help make the appetizers, sample them, and take some home, along with the recipes. Bring some small containers to carry your samples home. Registration is limited to 8 people.
Friends of the Library have begun a new membership year (after the spring meeting which was held March 11). If you are a member, it’s time to renew. If you are not a member, there’s no better time to join! Pick up a Friends brochure at the desk in the library. There’s a good-looking, brand new brochure designed by the students of Tina Stanley’s class at Iola High School; check it out!
Due to the weather, Iola Public Library will be closed on Tuesday, Feb. 26.
The “Preparing Your Home for Sale” must be jinxed! We’re cancelling this program for tomorrow night, again because of the snow. Watch for it to be rescheduled in the spring.
