Cookin’ for Health

Peggy Martin, CNN, will present another Cookin’ For Health class at the Payson Public Library at 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 24.

It will feature recipes from Diabetes Breakthroughs 2010 from the editors of Prevention with the staff of the Joslin Diabetes Center. The focus will be on fresh produce from farmers markets and will include the preparation of a “diabetic-friendly” green bean casserole using freshly picked green beans, onions, garlic, and peppers. Additionally, the class will explore roasted pepper creations and prepare a peppery eggplant appetizer.

Lessons from Animals

Kids, have you ever seen a hissing cockroach or a lizard with no legs? Or, have you kissed an African bullfrog? No? Parents, pastors and teachers bring your children and students to learn lessons about some of God’s extraordinary animals at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 27. Arizona Origin Science Association (AzOSA) is presenting “Live” Lessons from Animals at the Payson Public Library. Admission is free!

There will even be a petting zoo of sorts. Steve Lachonas, animal trainer from the Phoenix Zoo, will give his presentation with live animals and how they show us lessons from the Bible.

Lachonas will share many stories about the animals in the Phoenix Zoo and what we can learn from them.

AzOSA meets on the last Tuesday of every month at the Payson Public Library.
