> Make mozzarella
Does hand-crafting your own mozzarella sound like whey too much work? Then the Making Mozzarella class organized by the Lexington Co-op probably isn't for you.
On May 5, Trystan Sandvoss of First Light Farm and Creamery will lead the class, teaching cheese beginners how mozzarella is produced from cheese curds. Sandvoss, who produces goats' milk feta, Eastern Standard Jack and other cheeses with brother Max at their East Bethany facility, will answer questions.
Yes, there will be samples. The class will be held at Artisan Kitchens and Baths, 200 Amherst St.
The cost is $15, $12 for Co-op members. Registration is required; call 886-2667.
> Honoring Vietnam vets
The chapel in Forest Lawn will hold public visits to review a new book by Forest Lawn historian and Vietnam veteran Patrick Kavanagh honoring Western New York service members who lost their lives in the Vietnam War. According to a press release, the book contains information for more than 500 men and one woman who were killed or died while on active duty in Vietnam.
The book can be seen beginning Monday and through May 14 from 3 to 6 p.m., the anniversary of the day in 1975 when the last American servicemen died in the war and the last Marines guarding the U.S. Embassy in Saigon headed home.
Volunteers will be on hand to help find specific names within the book and make copies.
There are 51 Vietnam veterans buried at Forest Lawn who were killed during active duty in Vietnam. To reach the chapel, enter Forest Lawn through the Delaware Avenue or Main Street gates and follow the white line on the road.
