Receive 10 dogwood trees by joining the Arbor Day Foundation Everyone who joins the Arbor Day Foundation in August 2010 will receive 10 free white flow- ering dogwood trees. The free trees are part of the nonprofit Foundation's Trees for America campaign, a program dedicated to environmental stew- ardship through the planting of trees. "These trees will add year- round beauty to homes and neighborhoods," said John Rose- now, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Dogwood trees have showy spring flowers, scarlet autumn foliage, and red berries that at- tract songbirds all winter long." The trees will be shipped postpaid between October 15 and December 10, at the right time for planting in each member's area. The 6- to 12-inch trees are guaranteed to grow or they will be replaced free of charge. Planting instructions are enclosed with each shipment of trees.

According to adult education experts, there are at least six factors that serve as sources of motivation for adult learning. At the top of the list is building social relationships. Adults enjoy making new friends, which meets a need to have associations and friend- ships. Another motivation for adult learning is to fulfill external expectations. Many adults will comply with instru- ctions from other people who have influence or authority in their lives. Some adult learners are motivated by social welfare, meaning that they want to ~mprove their abilities in order to serve mankind. Those in- dividuals may have a goal of serving in their communities and need to improve their abilities so that they can interest, Many people want to learn just for the sake of learning. Some enjoy learning and like to seek knowledge to satisfy an inquiring mind. Learning is often mandated for adults in order to meet competency or licensing re- quirements, to maintain old skills or learn new ones, to adapt to job changes, or to com- ply with company directives. Whatever the motivation, one can accurately say that in adult life, learning is expected and necessary to remain active in " today's workforce. Unlike children and teen- agers, adults have many respon- sibilities that they must balance against the demands of learn- ing. Because of these respon- sibilities, adults have barriers against participating in learning. Some common barriers are lack "-- of time, money, confide' e, or interest. Additional o~ acles may include things such as lack needed financial a-,sis,ar~. while they work ta'.~a>] ~n.~ doctor of pharmac'~ dcg~ cc~ .The College was e~.tabiistcd as the Univer:d5. of A,paiaci,ia College of Pharmacx m Aus~usl i~iug body in eleven U.S. South- ern states, including Virginia, and in Latin America for those h~stitutions of higher education that award associate, baccalaur- eate. master's or doctoral de- MARKET CORNER NEWS Clinch R~ver Fa r' " rme s Market in downtown St. Paul ,.t
