Published on: July 25, 2012Learn a little history from Custer’s last stand to Precinct 3’s Kleb family as well as optimal health secrets, Asian recipes and jitterbug genealogy at the upcoming August workshops.
Lone Star College-CyFair’s Learning, Inspiration, Fellowship, and Enrichment (L.I.F.E.) programs are free and held Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the library (Room 131 unless otherwise noted) at 9191 Barker Cypress.
• August 1 — Custer’s Last Stand
General George Armstrong Custer was charismatic and impetuous. Crazy Horse was an Indian warrior and protector of his people. Alex Smith spins a tale of triumph and disaster from Gettysburg to Little Big Horn.
• August 8 — The Secret of Optimal Health
Mary Alavi, MD, Balanced Health and Wellness, believes in treating the underlying cause of disease, not just giving a drug to treat the symptom. Say, “I am a lean, vibrant, energetic person, free in mind, body and spirit, living in this incredible body of mine.” Now watch yourself unfold.
• August 15 — Kleb Family Pioneers
Precinct 3 is home to the Kleb Woods Nature Preserve. Listen as Director Fred Collins tells a story of how the prairie was transformed into a farm and then a forest by Elmer Kleb and his ancestors. Learn how the area was preserved for generations to come with the help of Commissioner Steve Radack.
• August 22 — Savor the Flavor
Huyen Doan and Jill Vu close out the summer with a signature Asian noodle salad and no-bake cookies.
• August 29 — Jitterbug Genealogy
Remember the jitterbug, zoot suits, and Rosie the Riveter? Mick Stafford doesn’t, but he will show you how to access genealogical records of the 1940s.
