Union Rd Lebanon, Ohio, its right there close to the Ohio Gaming place.    Its starts at 6:00 pm sharp and will end at 7:45.  Please bring writing material and any Questions you may have.

Rick Gibbs will be focusing on a program he teaches “Practical Preparedness” that shares a common sense approach for survival during many types of life situations including natural disasters and current events. 

Specifics to be covered are simple and practical ideas for being prepared, in case of utility disruptions, or food shortages.  Rick will stress the need to think about needed household items and being ready in case of an emergency situation.  Always be planning ahead and have a back-up plan.  Many of his suggested items are available locally, and may be necessary should a natural disaster or unexpected event disrupt our normal lives.  He will be giving us a presentation with a handout on preparedness.  Be sure to come to this one!

Gardening:   Leigh Ann Cartier will discuss–Do you ever see the gardening section at the store full of seeds and plant starts and wonder “What’s the difference between all the different tomatoes or beans, etc.?” Confused on what to start growing? Do you want to start growing but have a small space? You can grow more than you think if you choose the right kind of variety for your situation. You can grow in containers if you are tight on space. There are more options than you think.
