JLC Training Opportunities

Welcome to the Simplicity Lunch and Learn Series!
Simplicity is pleased to be hosting a monthly session at the Junior League Building. The format is simple. Peruse the range of topics that is timed to be seasonally appropriate, register online for best price or in person at the event, bring a topping for a shared salad, and come home with new ideas, techniques and maybe a new acquaintance. What better way to spend 90 minutes!

Topics are varied so pick the ones that interest you. Regardless, you’ll leave with tips and strategies for setting goals and making positive changes to simplify your home and your life. With Simplicity’s Lunch and Learn, you’ll be well on your way to a healthy, happy, and organized 2013!
