Living Well In Yalobusha County

Next Youth Sewing Class Will Be Offered At The First Of The Year

By Pamela Redwine


On Tuesday, November 12, I will be presenting the program “10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease.” The 10 steps that we will discuss during this program can help you recognize the warning signs of Alzheimer’s Disease. This program is free and will be held at the Extension office in the Multi-Purpose Building in Coffeeville at 1:30 p.m. I hope that you will join us.
Exercise Classes
The Healthy You Exer-cise class meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9 a.m. The class is free and is open to the public. Please wear cool comfortable clothes, good walking shoes and bring water to drink.  The nurse will be here on Wednesday, November 13 to see Healthy You Participants. Please arrive by 8:45 a.m. if you plan on seeing the nurse to get your blood pressure and glucose tested.
Crochet Class
The Crochet Class will meet at 10 a.m. on Thursday, November 14 at the Extension office in Coffeeville. This is a free program and is led by volunteer Karol Jarmon. Bring a crochet hook and some yarn and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and learn a new craft.
The painting class on Friday, November 1, went very well and was a lot of fun. We had 18 to participate and we painted a cute turkey for Thanksgiving. A special thank-you to Donna Hill for instructing us and for Jo Davis for assisting her.  We plan to have another class after the first of the year.

Dropoffs in Water Valley include Larson’s Piggly Wiggly, The Other Place, Blackmur Library and Freds. All food collected will benefit people in our area.

The next 4-H Meeting (combined Clover buds for ages 5-8 and Yalobusha Buddies for ages 10-18) will meet Thursday, November 14 at 4 p.m. During this meeting 4-Hers will be turning in their Operation Christmas Child boxes and we will also hold our awards program.

Sewing 101 Class
Five youth, Victoria Taylor, Abbigayle Taylor, Breeze Hughes, Gracie Summers and Anna Reeves,  completed the first Sewing 101 Class offered by the Yalobusha County Extension Service. This group learned many skills and are now able to attend other sewing classes offered by the Extension Service.  
We will have another Sewing 101 after the first of the year. A special thank you to our sewing volunteers: Alice Reeves, Nell Lowe and Sue Hughes.  Without their help this class would not have been possible.
