Come see us Saturday morning from 7 a.m. until noon at the Multi-Purpose Building in Coffeeville for the countywide Yard Sale and Craft Sale. As of now (Monday) there are about 10 families participating.    If you would still like to rent a space there are still some available. The cost is $15 and set up is Friday 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Whether shopping the sale or renting a booth, the Family & Consumer Science 4-H Club appreciates your help. For more information please call Pamela or Lisa at the Extension Office 675-2730
Join us Thursday, April 3 from noon to 1 p.m. for our Quickbite Program: Spring into Florals.  Lynette McDougald will be our presenter via interactive video. Mrs. McDougald will help us look at the spring influences in our floral designs. We will focus on spring colors, spring flowers, and the light, airy inspirations of the season. For more information or to let us know you are coming, call 675-2730.
The FCS 4-H Club had 11 members participate in the Second Annual Spring Fashion Show at the Yalobusha General Nursing Home on Satur-day, March 29. The girls had fun and did a great job.  They really demonstrated the information they have learned about clothing selection and modeling.
Our Healthy You Exercise Classes meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9 a.m. at the Extension office in Coffee-ville. The nurse will be available at the April 9 meeting.  Remember to arrive around 8:45.  Also, the Healthy You Nutrition Class will be held at 9:45 a.m. on April 9.
Our crochet group meets twice a month. The next meeting date is Thursday, April 3 at 10 a.m. in the conference room of the extension office.  The group is free, but you may want to bring your own yarn and needle.  Mrs. Karol Jarmon is our volunteer crochet leader.
The first meeting for the adult sewing group will be held Monday, April 7th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Extension Office. Our first project will be to make dresses to send with missionaries to places such as Nicaragua and Haiti.  Feel free to bring your own sewing machine and supplies or use ours. This is an open group, the public is invited to attend.
Last week was a very busy week as we saw over 700 children at Coffeeville Elementary and  David-son Elementary in Water Valley. The kids and teachers loved the Body Walk Exhibit and I know much learning took place.  A special thanks goes out to Holmes Community College RN students for presenting the lessons at Coffeeville and to North-west LPN students for teaching at Water Valley. Thank you also to both school administrations and coordinators for allowing us to bring this program to their schools.
