WAYNE COUNTY – For the past couple weeks, 4-H youth have been exploring the history of games in Wayne County. On Wednesday January 24th at 6:00PM the entire community is invited to join in the fun at a fREE community dinner at the Wayne County Community Center in Bicknell. The evening event includes inspiring conversation, live game demonstrations, a slide show of fascinating historical photos and stories, and fun activities for all ages. A free booklet will be available to extend the experience with friends and family.
USU Extension FSNE Nutrition Education Assistant and local chef Kate Chappell will be serving a healthy, game-themed dinner, while 4-H youth, teen leaders, and local volunteers share our cultural heritage of games and gaming.
Come see children playing traditional games and join in for some cross-generational fun. Let’s re-engage the community in the traditional of fun family games we all grew up playing like Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button?
To register for the free meal, please call the USU Extension/4-H Office at 435-836-1312 so we can get an estimate of the number of free meals to prepare.
This three-year cultural heritage project is supported through a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and matching funds provided by the Entrada Institute.
