No summer 4-H camp this year


Kevin Tatum, County Extension Coordinator

 

How about a “Peach Crumble” recipe this week? The ingredients needed include: 3 large sheets of graham crackers, 1 tablespoon of soft margarine, 2 teaspoons of sugar, a 15 ounce can of peaches (light syrup, can be slices or chunks), and 1 ½ cups of low-fat vanilla yogurt. Begin by placing the graham crackers in a zip top plastic bag or between two pieces of foil and crumble, using the unopened can of peaches as a rolling pin. Next melt the margarine in a skillet. Add the graham cracker crumbles and sugar to the melted margarine and stir to mix. Open the can of peaches and drain off the liquid, then heat until warm, 1-2 minutes. Pour ½ cup yogurt in each of 3 small (1 cup) bowls. Top each bowl with 1/3 of the warm peaches. Top peaches with 1/3 of the graham cracker crumbles and serve.

4-H Summer Activities

 

Our staff has evaluated and discussed our plans for 4-H summer activities. Since we are going to have to practice social distancing all summer, we don’t see how we are going to be able to do some of the trips we had planned. We are making every effort to schedule the 4-H Reward Trip/Summer Waves trip for later in July. We will get information out about this trip as soon as possible.

 

Camp Update    

 

Last week, Mr. Arch Smith, State 4-H Director, announced that we were not going to be able to hold our regular summer camping program this year due to the restrictions of the coronavirus. We are so disappointed that our kids will not get to experience this great adventure. Full refunds are being issued to families and should be in the mail this week. We are as upset as most of our 4-H members are about not getting to go this year. We will just have to look forward to what next summer will hold for us.
