Do you check the Health Department's restaurant ratings before picking out a place to dine?  If not, perhaps you should.  Some local restaurants allow raw chicken to drip into fresh salad greens, or flies and roaches to land on their food prep surfaces according to Lou Kudon, Program Manager of the Northeast Health District.

Come to the Athens library, 2025 Baxter St., or join us online Monday, July 11 at 12:30 p.m. to hear Lou discuss the most pressing public health issues in the Athens area.  He'll cover topics such as teen pregnancy, serious health issues as we grow older and food safety in our restaurants. There will be a Q &A session afterwards.  Light refreshments at the library.

Chick here to Register for online attendance to his program, Sex, Flies and Too Much Weight or just come to the library's board room shortly before 12:30.  It is cool inside . . .

Whoever said "The only thing constant in life is change" certainly got it right.

The Athens Library will conduct business as usual but in a topsy turvy way.  Soon the 2000 daily patrons will enter through a new door, and most everything inside will be rearranged except the children's section and the administration offices.  Come celebrate the beginning of our wonderful new library at the groundbreaking ceremony June 16 at 11:15, 2025 Baxter Street.

The Community Snapshot scheduled for June 17 has been rescheduled for July 11, 12:30 p.m. due to the library's construction project.  Come see Sex, Flies and Too Much Weight live at the library, or see the Community Snapshot page of this website to see how to log on live from your computer at work or home. Lou Kudon, program manager, Northeast Health District, will give the program explaining the greatest health concerns of the Athens area.

Even The Food Pyramid has been changed to a plate graphic to encourage us to eat more fruits and veggies. I think it is a great graphic, I'll have to see how it works at home.

When the tomatoes, squash and beans in my new raised vegetable garden ripen, I'm sure my plate will look more like the graphic.  If you'd like to discuss health, gardening or any other topics with the Athens Area Boomers please start or join a conversation in our Forum.
