A fun recipe for this week is called “Salted Nut Roll Bars.” You will need the following ingredients: 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk, 1 (10 oz.) pkg. Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips, 3 C. miniature marshmallows, and 1 (16 oz.) jar salted or dry roasted peanuts, divided. Directions: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter chips and marshmallows, stir it all up, and microwave for about 2 ½ minutes, stirring often, until melted. Spread half of the peanuts into a greased 9” x 13” pan. Spread marshmallow mixture over peanuts. Top with remaining peanuts. Refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting into bars. Store at room temperature.

The May announcement of no summer camp was a surprise to us all and a big disappointment for our 4-H members who were really looking forward to a week of 4-H camp. We are also disappointed to not be able to have face-to-face contact with our 4-H’ers at this time too. Here are some other bits of news that our 4-H members, parents, and volunteers need to know.
State 4-H Horse Show – Cancelled
State 4-H Council Meeting – Cancelled
State 4-H Congress Competition – Postponed, possibly converting to a virtual contest
Summer Day Camps – Cancelled
We are in hopes of having a face-to-face awards program in late July or early August, but the odds don’t seem to be in our favor at this time. If we cannot hold it in person, we are investigating the possibility of holding a virtual awards program to announce our award winners with the option of 4-H members picking up their awards at the 4-H office when it is safe to do so.
Please remember to continue to safe practices of social distancing until it is safe to resume a normal lifestyle and the threat of COVID-19 has passed.
