Is there really such a thing as brain food? Can fish really make us smarter?
One of the hardest-working organs we have is our brain and we have to keep it fit and healthy so it can take care of us.
Certified nutritionist Sharon Meyer will help answer these questions and show us how food can affect our moods and how our brain works. The Center for Integrative Health and Wellness at the Marin Cancer Institute presents "Brain Food = Mood Food" on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. The $35 fee includes some tasty treats designed to improve your mood. Call 1-888-996-9644 to register.

• Drop in at the Corte Madera Recreation Center on Wednesdays for a little Zumba action. The high-energy fitness class meets every Wednesday, 5:30-6:30 p.m. For more info please check Zumba.com or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Get your shopping list together — and make sure to include some fresh fruit — before heading over to the Corte Madera Farmers Market at the Town Center. Fresh produce, including figs, oranges, berries and more, is available every Wednesday from noon to 5 p.m. And check out our Recipe of the Week every Saturday to get some ideas for all that farm-fresh produce. We featured figs this past weekend.
• Origami napkin swans? Now that's a good thing. Drop by the Corte Madera Library on Thursday at 2 p.m. to learn the intricate art of origami. It can be such a relaxing and meditative hobby, but many people have also turned origami into a business. The class is for anyone ages 8 and older.
