If you’re one of the 67 million American adults who have high blood pressure, you won’t want to miss Lose It At The Library at 5:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 27.
Dietitian Stephanie Faroh of the Kosciusko County Purdue Extension Office will discuss how a healthy diet can help lower your blood pressure. You will also learn how weight affects blood pressure and how even moderate weigh loss can improve hypertension.
Lose It At The Library is a free weekly weight loss support program that provides encouragement, education, and accountability to help participants achieve their weight loss goals. The public is invited to Monday’s blood pressure presentation.
Earlier that day, Voyager Book Club meets at 10 a.m. to discuss and share western novels.
There is still time to get one read and join us for the discussion. The library has a large selection of westerns, so stop by and check one out.
Got a new recipe you’ve been dying to try?
Prepare it and try it out at Revolving Recipe Round-Up at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 28. Everyone will be bringing a new dish they have never made before for all to sample and share. Be sure to bring along the recipe to trade with others. The library provides the table service and free coffee and bottled water. So join us for some food, fun, and fellowship.
