Winter still sticking around after blast

(Continued)

The crafts that will be demonstrated are: needle felting, cinnamon ornaments, paper bead making, paper star tree form, soup bowl cozy, and many more.

These ladies always do a good job and they have invited anyone who wishes to attend.

Friday, Jan. 17 will be Atina Rozhon’s last day as Extension Educator in Decatur County. She will be devoting her time to Jennings County and taking care of her new daughter Catherine. If you would like to extend your thanks to Atina for the 8 years she has been here in our county, you may do so between 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the Extension Office.

It has been a delight to know her and we will miss her smiling face here. Maybe she will come back from time to time just to say “hello.”

We will be having a ‘sewing day” at the Extension Office on Saturday, Jan. 25 to make things for hospital patients. It will be from 9:30 a.m. to early afternoon. Bring scissors, sewing and cutting supplies such as rotary mat and cutter, your sewing machine if it is convenient, and help out in this venture. It is always fun when a bunch of ladies get together to work on a common cause. This is open to anyone who wants to get out of the house and have fun working together.
