Come join us for another fun evening of sign painting on Tuesday evening, June 4th from 6:00-8:30 PM in the Extension Office (downstairs meeting room).  There is one main design using three boards with lots of options to make it your own.  Kim Hohensee of Painted Creations will again be teaching the workshop.  Pre-registration will be required so Kim has time to make the stencils.  This will be open to all 4-Hers and any family members who want to paint.

4-Hers in grades 4-6 from Palo Alto, Pocahontas, Emmet, Calhoun, Sac, and Kossuth counties will have the opportunity to travel by charter bus to Des Moines for a fun-filled day.  First stop will be the Blank Park Zoo.  Then we will board the bus and travel to the Science Center of Iowa to explore the many science displays and hands-on activities.  Following the Science Center we will visit the Kids Warrior Gym where 4-Hers can compete in some physical challenges.  After the Warrior Gym experience we will head for home, stopping for ice cream and supper along the way.  Pre-registration is required.  Seats are limited due to the number of counties included so don’t wait to sign up!  Deadline is May 29th or as soon as all spots on bus are taken.
