Young Historians


Young Historians to Perform MONDAY Jan. 23rd at 6 PM Annual Kansas Day Performance for Public it’s a little

The Young Historians have picked their characters and are working on their scripts to bring you another fun-filled program about famous Kansans. This year we don’t have a theme, so you’ll learn about people including a former Miss America, Airplane builders and stunt folks, some famous criminals, artists and more. Kansas has a rich history of famous and infamous people. Come at 6 PM for a program where you will learn about a dozen or more of these folks.

They will also be performing for La Cygne and Parker Elementary students on Friday, Jan. 27th in the Performing Arts Center at Prairie View and for the DAR in Osawatomie in February, and the Retired Teachers group in April. This group of young actors and actresses does a great job sharing their knowledge about Kansas. Please join us for this event. Young Historian Practice dates are on the calendar on the back page.

Seed Starting by Nancy Kalman January 25 | 6:30 pm | LaCygne Library (209 N Broadway, La Cygne, KS 66040) Starting plants from seed is the most economical method of obtaining plants, with the advantage of a far greater selection than buying transplants at the nurseries. MdC EMG Nancy Kalman shares her encyclopedic knowledge of all things seed in this annual favorite training.  Topics include seed storage, soil medium and moisture, lighting, germination methods, and timing. Recommendations for transplanting into larger containers and into the garden provide the gardener with the information to succeed. Nancy Kalman grows pesticide-free fruits and vegetables for sale at her property, “Pickings and Pumpkins” in Spring Hill, KS.

For those of you who enjoyed the “Come Grow With Us” series last year, this is a follow-up class brought to you through our partnership with Megan Westerhold and Marias des Cygne Extension. Go to http://lacygnelibrary.evanced.info/signup/eventdetails?eventid=3151&lib=0&return= and sign up to participate in this event. Coming in March, we will have a Freezing and Dehydrating Class and in April, a class on composting. Watch for more details.
