SOW IT, GROW IT, SHOW IT!
Yes it's the annual Kenai Peninisula Fair in Ninilchik full of fun and exciting activities. One of the events you will not want to miss is the 4-H Junior Market Livestock auction that will be held on Saturday, August 22 at 1:30 pm. A BBQ featuring meat raised by 4-H'ers will follow the auction.
Tickets for the fair are available for purchase at the Cooperative Extension Office prior to the fair. Some of the proceeds from the tickets sales will be donated to our local 4-H Youth Developmnent program. Thank you to the Ninilchik Fair Board for their generosity to our youth!
See you at the Fair!
"Try it Once!"
You are invited to try fun ways to exercise on the Peninsula!
The Central Peninsula Change Club encourages you to try new ways of exercising by providing opportunities to "Try it Once!" This new program introduces and encourages investigating new physical activities before committing to them long term.
Try it Once in January taught participants how to make pool swimming into a workout routine. The March Try it Once activity was a lesson and workout using a spinning bike. In May, we enjoyed the great outdoors by learning disk golf techniques.
For more information on this new program call Linda Tannehill at 262-5824.
MEETING ROOM POLICY
The CES meeting is available for the Kenai Peninsula faculty or staff working with collaborators. We require that the room be reserved five days in advance. If the time of use requested is after hours, a member of the Kenai Peninsula faculty must be present for the durationof the meeting.
Neighbor to Neighbor Class Series
In an effort to encourage Alaskans to eat locally grown, produced, or gathered food and minimize energy consumption, the Neighbor to Neighbor series engages Extension volunteers to extend the reach of Cooperative Extension Service Sustainable Living programming.
Master Gardeners, 4-H Youth Development Leaders, Family & Community Education members and other community volunteers teach classes on raising animals for food and fiber; growing, harvesting and preserving fruit and vegetables; and techniques for living lightly on the land.
Neighbor to Neighbor classes offer local citizens the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills with their communities.
Interested in sharing your sustainable living knowledge with your neighbors?
Contact the Cooperative Extension Service, 907.262.5824.
STRONGWOMEN LIVE LIFE
StrongWomen Live Life highlights Alaskan women who celebrate living a healthy lifestyle in the Greatland. These are women who apply their workouts to everyday living.
