Sorry for the brief hiatus, folks. I had the chance to go home for a few days to spend time with my family, including my ridiculously cute nieces and nephews. But it’s good to be back in Azle!
We have a lot of great things planned for this new year. If the huge crowd at the gym last night was any indication, people are already feeling guilty about the excesses of the holiday and ready to get back in shape. So, be sure to join us for What’s Cookin’ on January 9th at 4:30 p.m. when we’ll have chef Paula Ambrose teach us how to make heart healthy salads. Then on January 11th, we’ll be hosting the National Archives of Ft. Worth, who will show us how to preserve our important documents, including family photos. Be sure to bring your documents so you can receive advice on how best to take care of them. The Main Street Book Club is meeting Tuesday, January 17th at 6:30 p.m. to discuss “Peace Like a River” by Leif Enger. Incidentally, this happens to be one of my top three favorite books of all time. This book contains equal measures of beauty and sadness, and there is music in Enger’s language (it should probably be read aloud). Finally, on Saturday, January 21st, Home Depot will be showing us how to winterize our homes. We don’t have exact times on this yet, but the workshop will be repeated a few times between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Whew! I’m exhausted, but excited, just thinking about what’s coming. We love planning new events, and we always try to do this with your wants and needs in mind. So, if you have an idea for a program, please feel free to call or come in and ask for Meg. I’d love to talk to you!
