Community Information Night on Learning Challenges Every Third Wednesday at the Japanese Coffee House on Chuckanut Drive in Bow.
This year Kate Bowers of Skagit Yoga and Neurotherapy will start a regular Community Information Night every Third Wednesday at the very beautiful Japanese Coffee House on Chuckanut Drive. This is free and open to the public. We will discuss issues related to learning challenges including those who are distractible and disorganized such that it impedes academic, work, social and life goals and dreams. We will peek at the underlying sensory and wiring differences that can leave an extremely bright person feeling "stupid" as Nancy felt. The format will be just as I've done in the past. Informally educational, reciprocal conversation with a chance to learn some activities helpful for those struggling with academic, social and work goals.

Joan DeVries, small livestock expert for WSU Extension will be at the Bow Little Market this Thursday, September 12 from 1 to 6 pm. Come down to the market to ask questions about construction and maintaining your very own chicken tractor. Imagine harnessing the power of the chicken scratch on your own farm. As these little egg layers go along scratching for food they eat your bug and weed pests while depositing manure in there place! I love it when animals do the work for me.
