My Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was spent watching my puppy run free in the snow with my son, making chocolate chip pancakes and bacon for the kiddos, putting the finishing touches on this newsletter for you, and teaching my dance fitness class at night…Ahhhh. He believed in the power of love and strength to overcome manmade challenges. It is always a blessing to hone in on our inner strength and love to reach new heights and live with purpose, even amidst struggles. I wish you all this and more! Enjoy this week’s FLC!
Peace & Blue Skies, Donna Bennett

Finger Lakes Community College will mark 50 years of classes on Thursday, Feb. 1, with announcement of a time capsule, the release of a commemorative book, and a gallery exhibit of works by FLCC’s first art faculty members and their students.
Community College of the Finger Lakes, the college’s original name, began full-time credit-bearing classes on Feb. 1, 1968.
The celebration is a series of events at the main campus between 2 and 6:30 p.m. All are free and open to the public. (If the college closes for winter weather, the event will be rescheduled for Feb. 8).The lineup is as follows:
· 2 p.m. – Exhibit opening and artists’ talk for “Mentors and Mentees: Celebrating 50 Years,” Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34, first floor.
· 3 p.m. – FLCC Student Corporation Time Capsule Announcement.
· 3:15 p.m. – 50th Anniversary Memories
· Immediately following the ceremony, an opening reception for the gallery exhibit will begin with refreshments and live music and run until 6:30 p.m.
The event also features the release of a full-color 50th anniversary commemorative book titled, “This Bold Decision: The Story of Finger Lakes Community College.” The limited-edition book will be on sale for $18 per copy.
Stay Healthy this Season
Rely on more than hand sanitizers. The alcohol-based gel may be convenient, but good old-fashioned soap and water is best when it comes to killing germs on your hands, according to a review of research in the American Journal of Public Health.
The Fix: Opt for soap and water as your first line of defense; make sure to get easily forgotten areas, like the backs of your hands. Then, when you cannot get to a sink, reach for a 60% alcohol hand sanitizer.
