*Dietitians: Serving Up Nutritional Savy!*
March 11, 2020, 6:30 PM
What do you think of when you think "dietitian?" Do you think of a person,
sitting at a desk, saying that we shouldn't eat anything that actually has
taste? On this national day recognizing registered
dietitians/nutritionists, learn more about the connections between
diabetes, healthy eating, and eye health.  Why is consulting with an RDN a
good idea?  Join Cheryl Bush, a registered dietitian, in this discussion to
encourage embracing a healthier diabetes lifestyle. *Registration is
required for participation. http://bit.ly/UMETelCon

you know that as a voter you have the right to an accessible polling place,
that you have the right to cast a private and independent vote, and receive
assistance when needed? Learn about the laws and regulations that protect
your right to vote in a free and open election; have your questions
answered by Mr. Jackson, a disability rights attorney, and Ms. Wright, a
Voting Advocate. This program is FREE and open to the public. Advanced

12:30 - Tactile Tour; Play begins at 1:00 PM
This brand-new fable of penance is filled with humor, heart, and music.
When a town is running low on compassion and a man is stripped of
companionship, just one kind stranger can tip the scales. Join in the
community as one passionate storyteller spins a supernatural tale of
loneliness seduced by the kindness and asks us “what do we owe each other?”
This program is FREE and open to the public. *Advanced registration is
