-A A +A
By Roberta Hunt

If you want to get your hands busy, then 4-H can show you how.  Want to learn to cook, rewire a lamp, plant a vegetable garden, raise a rabbit? 4-H can provide you the opportunity to learn how.
On April 6, youth wanting to learn basic cooking skills can attend the 4-H cooking workshop from 1 to 3 p.m. at the extension office.  There is no cost to participate.  The workshop is open to 4-H members who are not currently involved in the 4-H Food Starts Cooking Club.  Participants will complete a project that can be entered for the 4-H Youth Fair scheduled for April 29 and 30.
Electric can lamp kits and woodworking kits are available for order from the extension office.  Can lamp kits are $10 and the cost of woodworking kits vary according to the kit and wood required.
Here is a reminder to 4-H members interested in attending 4-H Camp, June 28 – July 1.  Anyone pre-registering and paying their $25 deposit for 4-H Camp prior to April 15 will be eligible for the drawing for a $50 Wal-Mart card.  It’s a great way to start getting supplies needed for summer camp! 
Applications were in the 4-H newsletter and are available from the extension office.
It’s spring and it’s time to start seeds to grow plants for the garden.  The 4-H Junior Gardening Club will begin its’ spring meetings on Tuesday, April 26, at 3:30 p.m. at the extension office.  Pre-registration is requested so materials can be provided.  The club will meet on a regular basis, to learn about flower and vegetable gardening.
