Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service San Saba CountyWe

On July 25, 2017, the San Saba County Texas Extension Education Association hosted our wonderful Lunch and Learn activity at the Mill Pond Park Civic Center with the Mature Driver Program in Waco.

What is the Mature Driver Program you may ask. The Mature Driver Program is a traffic safety educational program for adult drivers, focusing on ages 55 and older. The Program is a collaboration between Baylor Scott&White Hillcrest and the Texas Dept. of Transportation. The Program does not make decisions about whether a person should continue to drive and cannot suspend or terminate a person’s driver’s license.

San Saba’s 3rd Educational Tour to Spain

One of our 7 adults commented, “I didn’t realize that we were going to speed walk across Spain!” It seemed true as we traveled from northeast to southmost Spain on our tour. One of the travelers tracked some 35 miles that we walked in the 8 full days we toured in the country. It was quite hot (about like home) and the kids agreed they would return home grateful for their air conditioning! The food was very different from what some expected. A few took advantage of a Taco Bell in one city. Some were excited after a few days to see a Mexican restaurant. However, several were adventurous and found the Mediterranean flavors tasty. Such items as paella, tortilla (very different from the Mexican flatbread), hard breads, Spanish hams and cheeses, croquettes, flan, gelato, calamari, octopus and many foods made with olive oil were tried while traveling. Fanta orange was a big hit as usual—seems it is better in Spain!
