Cooking: Caring for Cancer in the Kitchen
Aug. 20, 10-11:30 a.m. at The Oasis senior center
Most of us know a friend or family
member who has battled cancer. For cancer patients and their
caregivers, both cooking and eating are a challenge, especially with
side effects from cancer treatments and the symptoms of various
types of cancer. Come learn about ways to help a friend or loved one
with cancer to ease discomfort, to cope with digestive side effects
of radiation and chemotherapy, and to boost nutrition and well-being
during recovery periods from surgery and cancer treatments.
Aug. 22-23 there will be a quarter midget regional race event.
Everyone is invited to come and watch an exciting day full of
quarter midget racing. QMA members ages 5-16 will compete in the
annual regional event. Qualifying and lower mains will be on
Saturday and A mains on Sunday. Free admission. Concessions
available. For additional information and directions, see
The ALQMA racetrack is in Broadwell (former Rocking Horse
Campground). The event will start at 9 a.m.
Bring your dirty canine to the Humane Society of Logan County
dog wash on Saturday, Aug. 22, at Graue Inc. You will have the
cleanest, fresh-smelling dog possible.
The Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival is fast approaching. HSLC will
have the "Hounds & Handbags" sale across from Latham Park and a
space in Scully Park. If you are interested in volunteering at one
of these venues, please call Lynn White at 217-732-4540. We are very
fortunate this year to be able to have a presence in two separate
areas of the balloon fest.
