Level I Foods

Begins: Each year in November
Leader: Cris Wilson
Members interested in cooking and learning more about the food pyramid and healthy eating should join the Level I Foods and Nutrition project. We learn to read recipes, the correct way to measure ingredients to make a recipe, how to vary a recipe with substitute ingredients, how to set the table, start building our own recipe file, and the best part is that we cook and eat at every meeting! Meetings are scheduled to begin in November and will continue through May. Level I members are 7 to 9 years of age.

Exploring 4H

Leader: Cris Wilson
Exploring 4-H is a great way for beginners to find out about 4-H. We spend time at our project meetings learning things such as what the four H's stand for and learning about projects that we may be interested in. We have worked together to learn more about ourselves and developed our group skills as well. We learn the ins and outs of record books and how to become more involved in your club meetings and give a project talk. Parents can learn something too which helps the members succeed. Meetings are held monthly and parents are welcome to attend with the 4-H member
