Lunch & Learn Sessions scheduled

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Iowa State University Extension has provided educational opportunities for generations of families. They will be presenting a series of "lunch and learn" sessions over the next several months at the Cherokee County extension Office, located at 209 Centennial Drive, Suite A.

The first session took place Wednesday Sept. 10.

"Lunch and Learn" provides a chance to learn about a topic of interest over your lunch hour. Each month, a different topic is presented by knowledgeable ISU Extension Field Staff and Master Gardeners. You may attend as many as you wish. A light lunch will be provided during the workshop. Pre-registration is requested. The cost of the classes is $5 per person, per session, including lunch. To register, call (712) 225-6196, or e-mail kindwall@iastate.edu.

Programs will start shortly after noon, and will last 30-45 minutes in order to allow

time for individuals to return to work.

Here is the schedule of "Lunch and Learn" Sessions:
