When I learned to drive, my boyfriend (future husband) said I should learn to change a tire – it would be a priceless skill. I did not think much about that at the time but over the years I had several flat tires and I appreciated the skill very much.
Today I sat in on What Women AUTO Know sponsored by McClary Tires. Mr. Jim McClary was very helpful in telling participants when to check their car maintenance and how to troubleshoot a few problems. This class was part of a Lunch and Learn series at the Center for Lifelong Learning for women who want to know how to take care of themselves. The summer classes included What Women AUTO Know and Self-Defense for Women. Watch for more classes like this in the fall.
Another workshop you might enjoy this summer, whether you are a business person or work at home, is the LinkedIn workshop that is scheduled Tuesday, July 31, from 11:30 to 1:00. The fee is $25 which includes lunch and a manual. David McElhaney is presenting the workshop. LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network. This class will give you an overview of the system. You can learn how to be found, how to find, and how to network.
At the Center for Lifelong Learning we regularly offer Lunch and Learn specials. Sometimes the topics are developed for business. Other times the topics cover helpful hints – like auto care or caring for older adults.
Three Lunch and Learns will be offered in July. The topics are directed at Human Resources leaders and small business owners. Prevalence of Sexual Harassment in Organizations is offered Monday, July 8, from 11:30am to 1:00 pm. Addiction and the 12 Step Program is offered Monday, July 15, from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Funeral Policies is offered Tuesday, July 16, from 11:30am to 1:00pm. All of the workshops are free. Bring your lunch or get a snack at the UnderGrounds Coffee Shop.
The UnderGrounds Coffee Shop is located in the Center for Lifelong Learning. This summer the Coffee Shop will offer Lemonade and Tropical Punch Slushes. On Tasty Tuesdays tempt your taste buds with a Brownie Sundae or an Iced Latte Float.
