Timely Topics series continues at the Agricultural Center with 'Closing Your Florida Home' on April 8

RELEASE DATE: March 19, 2008

TAVARES — The Lake County Extension Office's next education program in its Timely Topics series is "Closing Your Florida Home" on Tuesday, April 8, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Lake County Agricultural Center, located at 1951 Woodlea Road in Tavares.

"If you are leaving your home for an extended period of time, whether for the season or a long vacation, Closing Your Florida home will help you prepare your home before departure," said Deborah Boulware, who will be presenting the workshop along fellow Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent Julie England.

The workshop will help participants learn what they can do to minimize the possibility of finding a serious problem when they return home. Closing Your Home has been developed to help Florida residents make plans for protecting their homes when they are to be absent. Some of workshop's topics include moisture problems, deterioration of the exterior and intrusion of burglars and vandals.

Preregistration is requested for this free program. For more information or to register for the program, call Rene Bass at (352) 343-4101 or e-mail rcbass@ufl.edu.

The Lake County Extension Office presents its final installment of the educational Timely Topics series on Wednesday, May 7, on reducing the risk of food-borne illnesses. Throughout the year, a variety of educational programs is held at the Lake County Extension Office, which is a partnership between the University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and the Lake County Board of County Commissioners. Trained professionals and volunteers offer research-based education in agriculture, family and consumer sciences, and 4-H youth development.
