A healthy society is the result of strong communities. At the heart of a strong community are strong families. At the heart of strong families are strong marriages. And THAT, my friend, is why healthy marriages are important. Texas AgriLife Extension is honored to provide the spring, 2012, "Twogether in Texas" marriage education workshop. The workshop will cover the following topics:
This free workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 14, at the Hopkins County office of Texas AgriLife Extension Service, 1200 W. Houston Street, in Sulphur Springs. We will get started at 8:30 a.m., take a working lunch break, and finish up around 4:30 p.m. Refreshments will be provided, along with a booklet for each individual. This workshop is intended for engaged couples, seriously dating couples or anyone wanting to strengthen their marriage. Engaged couples will receive a certificate for a $60 waiver upon applying for a marriage license. The certificate is good for one year from the date it is issued.
Even though the workshop is free, couples are required to call the Hopkins County Extension office at 903-885-3443 to sign up by April 12 so adequate preparations can be made. Make the important step to reserve your spot.
Brown Bag Lunch Bunch
We've been having a wonderful time with the Brown Bag Lunch Bunch! If you are available at noon on Fridays, come join us at the ROC (Recreational Outreach Center) of First Baptist Church. We'll explore various nutrition topics and have a brief devotional/inspirational, followed by walking on the indoor track. Rain or shine outside, the weather is always perfect inside! Everybody needs to eat lunch to keep up their energy, and walking is an activity in which most people can participate, so this is the perfect opportunity to fellowship and improve your physical and spiritual health at the same time. It doesn't matter how fast or slow you walk - we're not doing this to compete.
Join us in the café area to begin. Bring a lunch and comfortable walking shoes. No registration necessary. If you can't come every Friday, no problem. Just come when you can and enjoy!
