RELEASE DATE: January 24, 2008

TAVARES — The Lake County Extension Office's next education program in its Timely Topics series is "Mold and Mildew: The Fungus Among Us " on Wednesday, Feb. 6, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Lake County Agricultural Center, located at 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares.

"People aren’t the only one's who love Florida's weather; mildew thrives in this warm and humid environment," said Deborah Boulware, a Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent with the Lake County Extension Office.
