Just a reminder to residents of Twin Lakes that Leadville/Lake County Fire Marshal Steve Boyle will be offering Fire Suppression Training today, Wednesday, June 7 at 1:30, at the historic Schoolhouse located at 231 Lang Street in Twin Lakes Village. The fire suppression demonstration will include using extinguishers on live fire. Learn the proper use and procedures for handling a fire extinguisher. Practice releasing the discharge hose on a real fire with an expert on hand to show you proper safety measures. Be prepared and make sure your equipment (and ataff!) is ready for the busy summer season!
Twin Lakes Seminar Series on Saturday
If you’re heading out to Twin Lakes this weekend, be sure to include in your plans a special presentation being offered at the historic schoolhouse on Saturday, June 10 from 4 – 6 p.m.
Sponsored by the Friends of Twin Lakes, the program “Islam and the West,” will be presented by local resident Dr. Ahmad Ghais. This is a follow-up to his “Primer to Islamist Extremism” and “Basics of Islam,” programs from last summer which were very well received. Please note that attendance at prior seminars is not a prerequisite for attending the June 10 program.
Saturday’s “Islam and the West,” event will provide attendees with a historical survey of the 15 centuries since the original revelation of the faith, focusing primarily on interactions with the West.
Dr. Ghais most recently presented these seminars as a course at Metropolitan State University. Dr. Ghais does not engage in current political commentary. The Friends of Twin Lakes believes it is through knowledge that people will be able to understand better, Islam and world events. The Twin Lakes Schoolhouse located at 231 Lang Street in the village.
