April 6th Meeting

April 6                    Hands-on Home repairs

A self-reliant person needs to be able to make small home repairs. This is becoming a lost art in our society. At the April meeting we will demonstrate a few common household repairs that you can easily do yourself. For example, are you ready to repair a toilet, fix a faucet, replace an outlet, fix a hole in the wall, weatherproof, fix a gutter, rewire an appliance, etc. Bring questions about something that you need to be fixed or knowledge on how you fixed something that adds to self-reliance.

 

See you 6:30-8:30 on Wednesday April 6, 2016 at the Graham Fire Hall 23014 70th Ave E.

Houston…we have a problem

We have a guest speaker for the November 4th meeting, but our usual location (Graham Fire Hall) is not accessible to us on that night. We are trying to finalize a change in venue to the library in North Star Elementary School (7719 224th St E, Graham, WA 98338). This school is located on 224th Ave. just east of the fire station road.

PLEASE join us for Bio-Individuality by Lexi Sandifer, Certified Nutritional Therapist at 6:30 in the North Star Elementary School. We will have some healthy treats that night too.

NOVEMBER GUEST SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT!

Tired of processed foods and the effects they have on your body?

Hear Lexi Sandifer, Certified Nutritional Therapist and ask her questions

on Bio-Individuality

Everybody is unique and different. How come I gain weight from Subway sandwiches, but Jared lost weight? Lexi will talk about the biological differences of our bodies and how chemicals and processed foods react differently with each body. This will be a GREAT evening with some healthFUL snacks offered.

See you at 6:30 in the Graham Fire Hall Station 23014 70th Ave, Graham, WA
