Madison County Association for Home and Community Education and area 4-H clubs gathered on Saturday, May 31, at the Farm Bureau Auditorium in Edwardsville to make Linus blankets for children in area hospitals. Though the group was small, they put together 10 blankets that morning and 10 more blankets were distributed to area 4-H clubs to complete and return to MCAHCE for distribution to the Linus Blanket Project. MCAHCE continues to support 4-H Clubs in their communities and wishes them success as they showcase their projects at the upcoming Madison County Fair and IL State Fair. For information about a 4-H Club in your community, contact University of Illinois Extension Office at 344-4230 or for a HCE Unit contact Joyce at 656-1331.
