The Winter Tri-County Fun and Learning Day for area Extension Homemakers Clubs was held Wednesday, Jan. 31 at the First United Methodist Church in Harrison.
The tri-county meetings are held quarterly, twice a year in Boone County, due to its central location, said Marsha Horton county extension agent-FCS for Newton County and one each in Newton and Carroll Counties. And according to Trudy McManus, program emcc for Wednesday’s gathering, and Boone County Extension agent-FCS, it’s never a surprise to see some Searcy County members attend the meetings.
The day is normally packed with fun, food, learning activities and educational and informative programs.
For this meeting first on the agenda was Lauren Copeland a certified yoga instructor with the UofA Extension service. She is the program associate for health from the state office and the one who teaches yoga to youth and adults out in the Arkansas Counties. She has 500 hours of yoga education and at Thursday’s meeting she was teaching chair yoga.
