Healthy You Exercise classes are free and meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. Make sure that you wear cool, comfortable clothes, good walking shoes and bring some water to drink.  

Our Crochet Group will meet on Thursday, February 5 at 10 am. This is a laid back group that enjoys sharing patterns and helping each other learn to do new projects – from baby blankets, to shawls and from beanies to scarfs they are all trying new and different things.  Yearly dues are $6 and you will need to bring your choice of yarn and hook.

Our 4-H art contest workday will be Thursday, February 5 from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Building in Coffeeville. Volunteer, Pat Rodrigue will have all art supplies needed and will be available to assist the children in their drawings.  We will be working on entries for the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery 2015 Youth Art Contest.  This is a free event and is open to all youth ages 8 to 18.

The Sewing 4 Service group will meet on Monday, February 9 at 10 a.m. at the Multi-Purpose.  We will have material and sewing machines all we need is you to help us complete our projects. We are working on walker bags for the nursing home.

Online shopping

Sometimes, online shopping can be a good deal. The price is reasonable, the product is what you expect, the service is reliable, and you save gas money by not having to drive to the store.

At other times, online shopping may not be a good deal. The price may be higher, the product may not be what you expected, the product may not arrive when you need it, or you may have trouble returning the product if it is not what you wanted.

Shipping and handling charges are expenses that may make shopping online cost more than shopping in retail stores. Another extra expense may be different state taxes that can make your total cost even more.

Add up the cost of these extra expenses before deciding to buy an item online. Compare the cost to what it would be if you bought the item from a store. You may also want to compare the item to what it would cost at less expensive places, such as thrift shops or yard sales.
