The De Soto Farmers’ Market is preparing for a great market season in 2019! To start things off right, we are holding the De Soto Farmers’ Market Trivia Night on February 23rd from 6:30-10:00 PM in the upper level of the K.C. Hall. The theme this year: Can You Come Out to Play! We hope you will consider being a sponsor or join us for this evening of trivia. A great time is sure to be had, and we’ll be repeating some of our successes from 2018 and bringing some new delights into 2019. The evening will include a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and lots of fun with the added bonus of feeling good about supporting our community. Bring your game face, table decorations (because the answer is “yes, of course we’re having a decorating competition based on the theme”), smart cousin, favorite snacks, soft drinks, wine and mixers. There will also be a fabulous prize for the table decorating competition that you’ll want to get your hands on!
Have fun getting fit with the Winter Flakes Couch to 5K program. Meet up with friends and family and join in on this great way to meet your 2019 health goals! This program is designed for the novice runner*. No pre-training is necessary, since it is designed for the “couch potato”.
The 2019 Winter Flakes Couch to 5K program starts Wednesday, January 2, 2019. This eight-week training program involves a weekly session with a running coach, a training plan, and weekly communication with nutrition tips and information. The cost is $45 and also includes the Winter Flakes 5K registration and race shirt for free (a $20 value). Participants will receive a stylish accessory and other participation prizes along the way! The weekly training sessions will be at Walther’s Park, depending on weather. Youth must have parental consent.
The training sessions will culminate with the Winter Flakes 5K run/walk on Saturday, March 2, 2019! All proceeds benefit Get Healthy De Soto programming, including trail development, Walking School Bus, community gardens, and more. Ready to register? Complete the form below or register online here.
