  • Please join us at the Cedar Key Arts Center either Friday mornings at 9 a.m. or Monday evenings at 6 p.m. for an  ongoing, very low-stress, low pressure weight management group.
    We are doing a little art directive (no, you don’t have to be an artist) and  having a goal setting/discussion.
    If you are managing your weight in a healthful way and neither need to lose nor gain weight, please come and share your experiences with us.
    There is no fee required at this time.
    For more information, contact Alexandria Zettler at awz08@my.fsu.edu.

    I probably got started into composting for the wrong reason. In Iowa, John and I live on the Des Moines River and I love to garden.  As the years have passed, my flower beds have both grown in size and number, including a rather large wildflower bank meadow.  And if that isn’t enough, once the grandchildren started arriving, our fruit and vegetable gardens started growing as well.
