The Sewing for Service Group will meet on Monday, October 6 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Currently the group is working on wheelchair bags for the Yalobusha General Nursing Home. This group is open and is free to the public. We have material and machines we just need you!
The crochet group will meet on Thursday, October 2 at 10 a.m. This group is free and is open to the public. If you would like to learn to crochet or if you would just like a group to meet with to work on your crocheting, then this is the group for you. We hope you will join us.
The Healthy You Exercise Group meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. at the Extension office. Join us for up to 45 minutes of low impact physical activity. If you come, make sure you wear comfortable, cool clothes, good walking shoes and bring some water to drink.
It is hard to believe it, but it is time to order your MSU cheese if you want it in time for the holiday season. You can contact the Yalobusha County Extension Service at 675-2730 or visit www.msu cheese.com for an order form (which has the list of different cheeses and price). If you do not order through our office please make sure to mark on your order form that Yalobusha Extension Service will pick up, then let us know that we will need to pick up your cheese. The deadline to order is Friday, October 24.
Plans are being made for the Yalobusha County Extension Service Holiday House, which will be Saturday, October 25. We will have vendors specializing in holiday (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s) decorations and gifts. We will also have some wonderful demonstrations and informative programs going on during the day. Entry to the event is free – however we do ask that you bring a canned food item to go towards our Food for Families Food Drive that we do each year with WTVA. This year we will be teaming with the Coffeeville Chamber of Commerce and have entertainment throughout the day as well as end the day with a concert.
Vendor booth spaces are currently being rented out. The cost of a 12 x 12 booth is $25. Food booths are also available for $35 (food booths include electricity). If you are interested in renting a booth, contact Allison Coleman at the Extension Office at 675-2730.
