I hope everyone has had a safe and happy New Year! The MSU-Extension Service will reopen on January 5 after celebrating the holidays with our families. Our exercise classes will also resume on Monday, January 5th at 9 a.m.
Do you love to make things? Do you hate to throw anything away because you could possibly use it in an arts and crafts project? If so, we have a club for you – the Create Club – join us for an interest meeting on Tuesday, January 13 at 10 a.m. at the Multi-Purpose Building in Coffeeville. The purpose of this meeting is to organize the club, plan the meeting schedule and to plan our first project – so come with ideas!
Research consistently shows that long-term weight control requires regular physical activity of at least 30-60 minutes per day. With that in mind, the award-winning weight control program called Walk-a-Weigh will be offered by the Mississippi State University Extension Service in Yalobusha County beginning on January 14 at 10 a.m. at the Multi-Purpose Building in Coffeeville. Each of the eight Walk-a-Weigh sessions will include a lesson on ways to control your weight, a taste-test of a low calorie recipe and time for the group to walk together. For more information on Walk-a-Weigh call Pamela Redwine at the Yalobusha County Extension Office or attend the Information Session on Wednesday, January 7 at 10 a.m. The cost of the program is $5. The deadline to pay and to register for the program is January 9.
Our crochet group meets at the Extension Office twice a month from 10 a.m. until noon. The group is led by volunteer Karol Jarman. The group dues are $6 a year and you will need to bring the yarn of your choice and a crochet hook. This is a great opportunity for beginners to learn how to crochet as well as good time for more experienced people to get ideas for new projects, or finish existing projects. We hope you will join us.
The Sewing for Service Group will meet at 10 a.m. on Monday, January 12 at the Yalobusha County Extension Service located inside the Multi-Purpose Building in Coffeeville. They will continue to make wheelchair bags for residents at Yalobusha General Hospital and Nursing Home.
Feel free to bring your own sewing machine and supplies or use ours. This group is free and the public is invited to attend.
