Stupendous Saturdays

The Studendous Saturdays series kicked off the year with kids in the kitchen. Under the guidance of Food Service Manager, Nola Haiss, a group of elementary girls prepared some sweets for their sweeties. The hands-on activites offered opportunities to enhance small motor skills, practice math skills, and develop kitchen skills, as well as some good old fashion taste testing.

Food for the Soul

The February YWCA Board of Directors meeting was a little more soulful than the regular monthly business meetings. It began with the annual Soul Food Dinner. The potluck included such delights as catfish, chicken & stuffing, greens, cabbage, cornbread, bread pudding, and some other mighty fine treats including some scrumptious desserts. This year's event was organized by Board vice-president Cindy King.

Sweet Hearts

Girls Together is a program for girls at the Alliance Middle School. The six grade group celebrated Valentines Day with activities designed to enhance their understanding of self and encourage self expression. This included decorating heart shaped cookies to suit their own unique taste.
