DECEMBER WORKSHOP — Each month the Obion County Public Library and the University of Tennessee Obion County 4-H Program team up and provide craft workshops for children in grades K-6. These workshops provide students with vital life skills such as independence, good self-esteem and the ability to think creatively. The December workshop celebrated Christmas. Youth created gift bags using the library’s Ellison Die Cuts, which are located in the Teacher Resource Center and free for use by the public, and filled the bags with Snowman Soup. Although the Snowman Soup bags were to be given as gifts to family and friends, participants and volunteers had the opportunity to make and drink their own Snowman Soup. TAG (Teen Advisory Group) members assisting with the workshop included Ray Fleenor and Brandon Fleenor. 4-H volunteers assisting during the workshop included 4-H All Stars Tyler Bolton and Shelly Pate, who is also a TAG member, as well as senior high 4-Her Cassidy Robinson and collegiate 4-Her Chelsie Darnell. The next workshop will be held Wednesday and will celebrate winter. Pre-registration is required and anyone interested may do so by contacting Children’s Librarian Jenny Virgin at 885-7000. Among those attending the December workshop were (sitting front) Children’s Assistant Heather Morton, Cassidy Robinson, Kailey Long, Amari Ervin, Kinleigh Cook, Ella Virgin, Emmalee Foster, Mrs. Virgin, (standing middle) Landry Eason, Dalton Morris, Thorpe Mitchell, Elex Carter, (standing back) Ray Fleenor, Miss Darnell, Miss Pate, Jacob Virgin, Madelyn Hogan, Garrett Foster, Anna Bright, Kaylee Cook, Brandon Fleenor, Obion County 4-H agent Una Johnson and Tyler Bolton.
