Lots to do, weather permitting, as we enjoy the rest of winter

As we enjoy the rest of winter, I have a couple of things you may want to do. In your last month’s newsletter, there was a form to nominate someone for the Certificate of Distinction award. Now is the time to nominate someone; we have many qualifed people.

If you need help filling out an application call the Extension Office at 663-8388 or call our county president Marilyn Davis for help.

If the weather permits, you may want to go to the Art On The Square Gallery and see the quilt displays this month. We have some homemakers with items on display as well the many wonderful quilters we have in our area are showing their talents.

This week we celebrate George Washington’s birthday, so I am including some recipes including cherries. We all know the story about George chopping down the cherry tree.
