Downtown Hutchinson has a full roster of Christmas activities planned. Free carriage rides, visits with Santa and Gingerbread house decorating are all scheduled. Many activities are free for families.
During the evening authors David Smith and Jason Ryberg will read from their poetry and members of the audience will be encouraged to take the stage and share their efforts. Accomplished artists, Ryberg and Smith have woven events from lives of varied experience into their poetry.
This night of poetry is brought to you by the Hutchinson/Reno Arts and Humanities Council and Hutchinson Community College in cooperation with the Hutchinson Art Center. For more information call 620/662-1280 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Technology is a great kitchen companion. With the holidays coming up, most people will be spending more time in the kitchen than normal, so come learn about using technology to make cooking easier. This class, Cooking with Computers, will demonstrate multiple websites that are a great resource for beginning and experienced cooks.
No math needed to double recipes, find details on substitutions, copy-cat recipes for your favorite restaurant meals, and information on how to organize cooking for a group. If you want to make green bean casserole or a Croquembouche, you can find help online.
We’ll also touch on how to preserve your family recipes for future generations.
The class is being taught by Patsy Terrell, who has been writing a cooking column in Kansas Country Living for almost 20 years.
Cooking with Computers will be offered on December 4 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and on December 5 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Both classes are the same, so pick what is best for your schedule.
Class size is limited, registration is required. Register by filling out the online form, calling 620-663-5441 ext. 163, or going to the library computer center on the second floor.
