Tonight we were able to help create an opportunity for learning and community service. We asked each member to bring canned goods for our local food pantry as an 'admission price' for the workshop.

After the contest demo, we had two main stations--the smoothie station and the My Plate. Sean and Henry took on the job of presenting the new nutritional program, My Plate. We created a power point presentation to talk about the different parts of the plate (shown below).

I thought it was funny because the boys did a great presentation for the first group that came through; however, the pull of smoothies was too much. They begged to go to the smoothie presentation for the second round! It worked out well in the end. One of the other members, Joseph, volunteered to take over the presentation with my help. That was great leadership for him and he made it a funny second round! Thanks for your help, Joseph!
We ended the night by cleaning up. While doing that the county extension agent asked us if we would be willing to decorate for the Gold Star Banquet next week. So, now the wheels they are a turnin' as three 4H moms set to work to transform the 4H building into the Texas State Fair! More on that next week!
