Youth Get in the Summer Spirit during the
Local youth had the opportunity to decorate their very own summer themed welcome mat during a workshop hosted by the University of Illinois Extension on July 10. 4-H Volunteer Carolyn Winningham was on hand to help youth during this event. Youth used their creativity to design their mats with paintings of watermelon, cactus, or popsicles.
