Hardin Hootenannies 4-H Club involved in lots of summer activities

By reporter, Faith Holbrook

The Hardin County Hootenannies 4-H Club are doing our group project, Star Spangled Foods and use the foods for our refreshments. 

For each meeting, the group has a certain menu from the project that a couple members work together to make and the other members do homework, experiments and physical exercises. 

This week Dylan and Levi Beiler made Snickerdoodle cookies. Dylan explained sugar was not available in large quantities in the American pioneer days and they learned to cook/bake with less. Levi shared how to measure ingredients. 

We had apple slices included in the menu and experimented how the sweet cookie verses the tart of the apple affected our taste buds and sharpens their taste.  And of course, who can have cookies without milk? 

We are learning about the food groups, but also about exercise.  Parent Kriss Brien gave a presentation on the four aspects of fitness:  Aerobic exercise, Flexibility, Endurance, and Strength. Everyone got up and participated. We actually had fun!

Kriss is heading up the Hardin Co. YMCA Youth Triathlon on July 27 and was recruiting our help since we agreed to do this for a community service.

Our next meeting is Sun July 7th, 4pm at Faith Holbrook's farm. Bring lawn chairs. Laura Spradlin and Faith will have refreshments.
