Knowledge @ Noon

Knowledge at Noon presentations will be held on the first Thursday of every month at Noon. We invite the public to attend each session free of charge. This year’s sessions will be held at a new location – the Gray County Over 50 Center, 221 S Main, Cimarron, KS.  The programs are designed to start at approximately 12:10 pm and conclude around 12: 50 pm.

Since the programming is held over the noon hour, attendees are invited to bring their lunch with tea, water, and a desert provided.  Or if you’d like a hot lunch, they are available from the Gray County Over 50 Center – suggested donation of $5.50 or $3.50 if over the age of 60.  If interested in a hot lunch, contact Marilyn by 1 PM at 620-855-3711 the day prior to the lesson.

The Knowledge at Noon Series is sponsored by the Gray County Extension Office, the Extension Family & Consumer Science Program Development Committee, & the Cimarron City Library.
