Activities announced for HCE Week

Piatt County Home and Community Education units will be presenting a number of events during Illinois’ state recognized HCE week, October 8-14. They include the following:

–Monday, Oct. 8: 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Extension Office, 210 S. Market St. in Monticello. For the younger generation, HCE members are planning to offer instruction on what they are calling Heritage Skills. These skills include loom knitting, sock knitting, primitive rug hooking, and even a skill as simple as sewing on a button.

–Monday, Oct. 8: 6:45 to 7 p.m. at the Extension office. Have you ever wondered what HCE is all about? Come early for refreshments and meet some of the members of the local Home Community Education (HCE) group. Learn how they are enhancing their own lives and the lives of other individuals and families through quality educational programs and experiences.

–Monday, Oct. 8: 7 to 8 p.m. at the Extension Office. Cindy and Frank Grgurich present “It’s All Dried Up.” This is a lesson that will tell attendees everything they wanted to know about food dehydration.

With 40 years of experience, Cindy and Frank know how to dehydrate almost everything and make soups, nuts, fruit leathers, and more through dehydration. You will walk away with enough information, recipes, and inspiration to start preserving foods at home yourself.

–Tuesday, October 9: 10:30 a.m. Everyone is invited to take part in a tour of the 4-H Camp at Allerton Park. Did you go to 4-H Camp in the past? Are you just curious? This is a chance to see how the camp looks today. Those taking part should meet at the 4-H camp itself. Just follow the arrows for parking once you get there.

After the camp tour, all are invited to enjoy lunch at the new Allerton Greenhouse Cafe.
