“Coming Home”, a program to build and sustain the Alletta Schadler Scholarship Fund and to provide awareness of existing extension programs, will be held Monday, October 23, 2017 with two sessions available. The morning session is 8:50 AM to noon with registration at 8:30 AM and the evening session is from 5:50 PM to 9 PM with registration at 5:30 PM. The programs are held at the Penn State Extension of Lebanon County at the Lebanon Valley Agricultural Center, 2120 Cornwall Road, Lebanon.
First on the program is the Mary Clark and Carol Ebersole presenting ‘ A-Maize-ing DYI “Do it Yourself” Décor’. From the history of corn husk usage to simple decorative corn husk crafts, you will learn how easy it is to create these crafts on your own. Come and be a part of the long history of people who have celebrated corn and its decorative qualities.
The second topic is ‘Food, Form and Flavor Inspirations for the Holiday’, presented by Alletta (Letie) Schadler. Looking for a different way to present holiday foods? How about a surprise for your taste buds? (Citrus/lemon in unexpected places, Italian flavors, new shapes for entrees and desserts). Recipes and tastings will get you in the mood to try new menu items for your family and guests.
Debbie Hartman and Jane Yocum are presenting ‘Ginger…..Not Just For Teriyaki’. There are so many ways to incorporate ginger (Zingiber officinale) in your life. This versatile ingredient can be used in beverages, sweets, capturing and using its aroma, and even growing ginger in your own garden.
There will be silent auction opportunities, a book sale and breaks between the topics. The cost of the program is $20.
