4-H Clubs

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.
