Learn-In lesson topics announced

Shawano County Home and Community Education is hosting its 33rd annual Learn-In with Waupaca County HCE from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Main Event in Cecil.

This event is open to everyone who likes to keep up to date with new information and have fun learning with others. You do not have to be a member of HCE.

The cost is $18 per person; it includes refreshments, lunch (chicken ala king over rice, dessert and a beverage) and speakers.

Registrations begins at 9 a.m. Following a brief welcome, Mart Matyska will present “Trunk Show: What the Well-Dressed Woman Wore” at 9:35 a.m. The program features a trunk full of vintage fashions from the 1880s to the 1970s.

Dawn Martin will discuss “Pollinators in Your Garden and Yard” from 10:45-11:45 a.m. Participants will learn how to identify bees, discuss their work as pollinators, and talk about how to increase the bee population.

Nancy Schultz will lead a “Flex and Stretch Session” from 12:45-1 p.m. Participants are asked to bring two cans of soup for weights; the cans will be donated to a local food pantry.

From 1-1:50 p.m., Bonnie Splitt will lead “It’s a What? It’s a What’s-It,” a presentation to stimulate brain cells. She will share a variety of items that have been created for a specific purpose; some old, some new. Have fun as you think about what the heck they are and perhaps take a trip back in time.

Schultz will lead the final lesson, “Mindfulness: Taking Care of You,” from 2-3 p.m. Participants can learn interactive activities to help sharpen the brain, reduce stress, and take better care of all aspects of one’s health — body, mind and spirit.
