Prairie View A&M to Offer Free Community Enrichment Programming

The City of Temple Parks and Leisure Services is partnering with the Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension Program to offer a variety of free programming to the community. Programs in Family and Consumer Sciences and Community and Economic Development, Prairie View’s areas of expertise, will be brought to the community.

“Prairie View offers so many programs that can benefit our citizens. We tried to choose programs that were easily accessible and could benefit a large number of citizens,” says Belinda Garcia, Program Coordinator for the City of Temple Parks and Leisure Services.

Classes such as “Housecleaning Made Simple” will highlight the benefits of a clean house, how to develop a cleaning plan and remove clutter and how to save money with homemade cleaning products. This free class will take place on Thursday, May 22nd from 6-8pm at the Blackmon Community Center. Childcare will be provided; however, space is limited. Pre-register by May 19.

Another program offered is “Two-gether in Texas”, a program for newly engaged couples to receive information on communication, conflict resolution, problem solving, budgeting, and other topics relevant to starting a life together. “This is a wonderful course for newlyweds and engaged couples. With completion of this course couples will get a certificate that waives the $60 marriage license fee,” says Tiffany Conner, Program Coordinator for the City of Temple. Two-gether in Texas is a free program and will take place June 21st at Wilson Park Recreation Center from 9:00am-12:00pm. Pre-register by June 13th.

Pre-registration is required for all programs. Space is limited. For more information about any of the programs listed, visit www.templeparks.com or call Belinda Garcia at 298-5733.
