How Would You Like Your Fortune Told?

(Thursday, March 30th, 2017 — 6:30 PM)

Bob Trzeciak returns with the history of the ways people have sought to look into their futures
throughout the ages.  Learn the bizarre history of the fortune cookie and how the ancient Babylonians
and Egyptians endeavored to see what was yet to be.  From Chinese Chien Tung sticks to numerology
to tarot to reading tea leaves and coffee grounds — join us for a fascinating journey around the world and
through time to see how people have tried to learn (and possibly avoid) their fates.
And speaking of fate, be sure to stay for the palm-readings after the show to learn your own…

Container Gardening

(Thursday, May 18, 2017 — 6:30 PM)

Remember all those wonderful ideas you got in the Designing Your Home Landscape program?
Kathleen Obirek returns with a companion program to show you how to make some of those ideas
a reality.  Lift your landscape design off the ground and onto decks, patios, terraces, and balconies with
these “movable gardens.”  Kathleen will demonstrate how to select, prepare, plant, and enjoy your
containers.  She’ll show you how to prep them for winter, too, so you can watch them come to life again
when the warm weather returns.  The Container Garden that Kathy creates for this program will be given
as a door prize to one lucky attendee!
