McCord’s Homemak­ers plan­ning Field-to-Fork Din­ner

Cherokee County Herald - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

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.
