If you aren’t already, you could be a ‘locavore’

-A A +A
By June Roberta

The food being sold at our Farmers Market is locally grown. A new term has been coined – “locavore.” It describes consumers who want the freshness and sense of community that comes from eating their locally-grown products.

The local food movement represents small-scale production centered in a place. Large corporations peddling their stuff are the exact opposite.

The market’s hours are conducive to anyone’s shopping hours as it’s open all morning. Besides getting fresh, delicious food, there is always the chance of meeting neighbors and friends for a few minutes of chatting. 

The Farmers Market at Circle Square Commons is open every Thursday, spring and summer, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Master the Possibilities

Although there are no classes at Master the Possibilities Education Center next week, online registration is now open and you can register for more than 140 classes, lectures and presentations over the summer (July, August, September). All you have to do is go to the Web site masterthepossibilities.com. You can view/download the catalog, make your selec-tions and get immediate confirmations …  it’s that easy!

On Thursday, July 2, the hard copy catalog will be distributed at On Top of the World Communities, Stonecreek and other neighboring communities (With your newspaper). If you don’t get one, stop by the Center (8415 S.W. 80th St.) and they’ll give you one.

On July 2, you’ll be able to register by phone (online is still the easiest) by calling 854-3699. Leave your name, phone number and the classes you would like. The staff will return your call within one business day to confirm your enrollment. I urge you to register early since a number of classes will fill early! I’m told that the summer curriculum has about 65 new offerings and is the best yet! See you all in class!

The Sunshine Singer

of  OTOW

“It’s a small world.” On May 25, this group sang as part of the observance marking Memorial Day. Veteran Ron Eberly approached one of the chorus members, Jim Oakes. He asked Jim and his wife Kathy if they remembered him. Jim didn’t believe so.

Ron reminded them that he had dinner at their home in the Philippines 30 years ago. Ron was Jim’s best friend from the Navy and now they both live here at OTOW. It was quite a day for both these veterans. This is the first time in 30 years that they have seen each other.

And this too shall pass …
