Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery and Russell County UK Cooperative Extension Service to Lead a Four Week We Can! Parent/Leader Training

Things have changed through the years, and with busy schedules and numerous activities filling up one’s schedule, families are challenged more than ever to seek out ways to eat better, exercise more and spend time together. This in mind, couldn’t we all use a hand helping our kids eat better and move more? If you are nodding in agreement, come learn practical tools that really work in a fun and friendly atmosphere! Make plans to mark off April 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th, 2010 as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery, and the Friends of Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery, Inc, in partnership with the Russell County UK Cooperative Extension Service, offers an engaging four week parent session offered through the We Can! Program. We Can!, which stands for Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity and Nutrition, offers this training, aimed specifically at parents of children ages 7 through 13, free of charge. Meetings will be held at the Russell County UK Cooperative Extension Service office each of the 4 Monday’s listed above, from 5 p.m. 6 p.m. CST, and all participants will enjoy a bevy of fun activities, including cooking demos for quick snacks and meals that kids will eat; a chance to talk to other parents; a copy of the We Can! Parents Handbook; along with creative ideas for getting your family active and loving it!  All in attendance at each of the four sessions will receive a “Healthy Eating” Cookbook and will be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift card too. 

 

Pre-registration is required for planning purposes and can be done so by contacting Julie Beckmann at the Russell County UK Cooperative Extension Office at 270-866-4477.
