4-H Summer activities

By Melanie Potter 

Summer has been stocked full of activities with the 4-H program for those that are interested. Here are a few of the other things that have gone on the last couple of months. We’ve made quilt-top pillows with the sewing fun day with assistance from the local Quilt club. The jewelry making workshop was held in June. There were kids creating jewelry sets while others hammering messages into dog tags. Within a couple of hours everyone was able to walk away with a completed project they could happily wear and show to friends and family. The annual sewing camp was an opportunity for the youth to create quillows and learn some basic sewing and quilting skills. For the first time this summer we had the “Get Up and Move” camp which taught participants different dance routines and how to enjoy being active even in the summer heat. There has been a series of Food and Nutrition workshops for those that are interested in learning cooking and nutritional skills.
