LaRue County’s Relay for Life will kickoff Saturday, Oct. 13.
Citizens are invited to join other teams to celebrate cancer awareness at 7 p.m. on Lincoln Square. A giant luminaire built by the Veirs Crew will provide the backdrop at the ceremony where several awards will be presented for the past Relay season.
Team registration is free until Oct. 31. Beginning Nov. 1 registration is $50 and after Dec. 31 the fee increases to $100.
A series of four sewing classes will be offered in October and November for beginning sewers. No sewing experience is necessary.
The class is open to 4-H age youth, ages 9 to 18. Participants make a variety of items that can be used as holiday presents. The classes will be taught by Master Clothing Volunteer Judy Greenwell.
Class size is limited. Participants must call the Extension Office at 358-3401 to register to participate. Each participant must bring their own sewing machine or borrow one of the machines at the Extension Office.
In 2010, the single largest component of municipal solid waste sent to landfills was not paper or plastic, aluminum cans or glass, but food waste. Food waste includes uneaten food and food preparation scraps.
It’s estimated that a family of four throws out nearly $600 worth of food each year. Food waste is not only hard on our pocket books, but also our environment.
