McCord’s Homemakers planning Field-to-Fork Dinner
The McCord’s Crossroads Homemakers Club along with local farm agencies and services are planning their first “Field-to-Fork” Dinner on Aug. 19 at the Hopewell Community Center, 7290 County Road 16, Centre. The community is invited to drop by between 4 and 7 p.m. to show their appreciation and lend support to the local farmers while enjoying an evening of entertainment and a delicious home-cooked meal of farm- fresh vegetables and meats. A suggested donation per person will help cover the costs.
Representatives of the farming community will be on hand to bring the latest developments in farm programs and updates on the crop status in our area.
Any organization or individual who would like to offer suggestions, assist or participate in the event, please contact Lynn Petty at 706767-1612 or Peggy Dempsey at 256-557-3373.
Imagination Place Children’s Museum inside the Hardin Center will come alive Saturday for the third annual “Kidstown Alive” event from 10 a.m. to noon.
Imagination Place always features a child-sized town complete with businesses and areas where children can imagine themselves in adult roles. During this special day, they are able to meet real-life counterparts who do those jobs in our community each and every day. For example, children can talk to a banker in the bank, meet a grocer in the grocery store, and visit with medical personnel in the medical clinic. Police officers, fire fighters, construction workers, civic leaders, and more will be on hand to meet children and talk to them about their careers.
Imagination Place staff will be doing face painting, leading games, and giving away prizes. Children will have the opportunity to take photos with the adult professionals and learn more about what they want to be when they grow up. “Imagination Place is always an exciting place for children, but we’re excited about it being even more interactive and fun during Kidstown Alive. Last year was terrific fun and this year will be even better,” said Holly Guinn from Imagination Place. “We have many people from the community who are volunteering their time to meet with our visitors and we hope this event will spark even more imagination in the minds of the children.”
The Kidstown Alive event is free with regular paid admission to the Hardin Center. Admission free for children under 2, and free for Hardin Center members.
