Cooking Sourdough Bread 5.2.24


with Bill Babb

Calendar May 2, 2024 at 5:30 pm

There is nothing like the aroma of freshly baked sourdough bread unless it is enjoying a slice of freshly baked bread with butter shortly after coming out of the oven! Students will learn how to care for a sourdough starter, how to knead using two different techniques, and how to mix, shape and score the bread for baking. The instructor will demonstrate two ways to bake a loaf, using a cloche or a stone with steam in the oven, followed by a taste testing. Students will then shape, score and bake a loaf of their own in class. They will take home some sourdough culture (bring a 32 ounce container) for bread baking at home. A $5 ingredients fee is payable to the instructor at class.

Freedom isn't Free - Our Working Constitution


with Tom Hepp

Calendar May 2, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

How well do you know our constitution? Our political leaders are always referring to one part or another, but do you know what it means for you, the average citizen? This class will be part instruction, part discussion group and part investigation into the truth about how our original government was intended to operate by our founding fathers (and mothers) and what changes have taken place over the last 240 years. We will read and study the original founding documents; the Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation and The Constitution, including The Bill of Rights. What are your unalienable rights? If you do not know your rights, you effectively have none. As Thomas Jefferson said, "Freedom is not free; the price you must pay for freedom is eternal vigilance." This vigilance requires “We the People” to keep a watchful eye on our government and be aware when our unalienable rights are being violated. It is becoming more and more uncertain that we are being governed by the constitution given to us by our founding fathers.
